CLSJ To Rally Young Black Voters To The Polls And Ensure They Flip Their Ballots

The event, featuring CLSJ leaders and other community stakeholders, will encourage young voter turnout and boost awareness of the four ballot proposals

New York, NY – The Center for Law and Social Justice (CLSJ), New York’s oldest racial justice-focused law center will gather to support and galvanize local voters ahead of Election Day on Wednesday, Nov 2, 2022, at 12:00 pm at the Southeast corner of Crown Street and Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. 

CLSJ will encourage Black and Brown New Yorkers, particularly young adults of voting age to be civically engaged by heading to the ballot box. The rally will promote Early Voting and the need for the City’s youth of African descent to turn out while also highlighting the three NYC Ballot Initiatives introduced by the groundbreaking Racial Justice Commission as part of its ‘Our Future Our Vote’ young voters initiative. Executive Director Lurie Daniel Favors, Esq, Voting Rights Coordinator Isaiah Fenichel, and other community leaders and activists will address the need for increased political participation in all forms from young voters to continue building upon the legacy of Medgar Evers and all those dedicated to fighting for Black lives. Both New York and the entire nation face critical inflection points. The rally will underscore the urgency of this moment in which we must work to build the future we want to live in with the power of our votes.
