WITH LESS THAN 100 DAYS UNTIL THE 2022 MIDTERM ELECTIONS, THE NATIONAL COALITION ON BLACK CIVIC PARTICIPATION WRAPS UP LAUNCH WEEK OF ITS UNITY 2022 BLACK VOTER EMPOWERMENT CAMPAIGN FOCUSED ON INCREASING BLACK VOTER TURNOUT AND FIGHTING FOR RIGHTS, FREEDO

WASHINGTON, DC (August 2, 2022) – Yesterday, The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP) wrapped up a week of action to launch Phase One of its National Unity 2022 Black Voting & Power Building Campaign (Unity ’22 Campaign) – a multi-state organizing, non-partisan integrated voter engagement effort aimed at elevating the issues important to Black voters and increasing Black voter turnout in the 2022 Mid-Term Election Cycle.  The Unity ’22 Campaign is a diverse group of over 50 national and state-based partner organizations, NCBCP affiliates and networks (see unitycampaign.org for full list).

NCBCP’s Unity ’22 Campaign Phase One includes a Summer of Organizing and Activism that was kicked off with a Unity ’22 National Organizing Meeting, #RuVoteReady social media campaign, Black Women’s Roundtable - Black Women Leaders and Allies Call to Action Speak Out for Rights, Freedoms, Safety and Justice at the steps of The United States Supreme Court, Black Youth Vote - Brothers Can We Talk Twitter Townhall on the topic “What Black Men Want For Their Vote in 2022,” and GOTV phone banking in Michigan and Ohio led by Michigan Coalition on Black Civic Participation and Ohio Unity Coalition for their August 2nd primaries.

The Unity ’22 week-long launch is the first in a series of in-person and virtual voter education, issue organizing and on-the-ground mobilizations that NCBCP state-affiliates/networks and its Unity ’22 Campaign Partners are organizing nationally and in key Battleground and Southern states (AL, FL, GA, LA, MD, MI, MS, OH, PA, VA and DC) to increase Black voter turnout and ensure voters everywhere are armed with the information and tools they need to ensure their voices are heard during the primary process and ahead throughout the voting period leading up to Election Day, November 8th.

Melanie L. Campbell, President and CEO of The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and Convener of The Black Women’s Roundtable stated, “Our country and our democracy is currently in a state of emergency. With less than 100 days to go before the 2022 Midterm Elections, the stakes could not be higher.  We are sounding the alarm that this election will determine whether our democracy will exist for future generations, or be overtaken by white supremacists and authoritarians.  The Unity ’22 Black Voting & Power Building National Campaign mission is to register, educate, motivate and mobilize Black voters across the country to own their voting power to win on the issues they care about, protect our rights & freedoms and save our democracy from peril.  We are laser focused on arming Black voters to know their voting rights in order to have their vote counted when they go to the polls.”
