Voting Rights in NYC

Our Future Our Vote Campaign

While New York may not be the primary state mentioned in national voting rights discussions, historically it remains a serial offender when it comes to restricting the right to vote and subsequently limiting the strength of political power in communities of African descent. In light of that history, Black New Yorkers must continue to use every tool available to determine who and what best serves their community. Voting is a key part of that effort and that’s why the CLSJ Our Future Our Vote campaign seeks to:

  • Elevate civic knowledge and civic participation in Black NYC communities with a special emphasis on Black youth ages 17-35;
  • Build out the infrastructure necessary for sustained political empowerment within NYC’s communities of African descent; and
  • Center the power of the people through voting, civic engagement, and grassroots organizing!
