Black Youth Vote


Have you ever wondered about the black youth vote? Is anyone organizing young black voters? Well check out the website: Black Youth Vote! We adults need to continue to connect our young people with positive activities like the black youth vote, NAACP youth councils and other activities with our communities. Each one teach one!

Black Youth Vote is not just a program, it’s a movement! BYV! strives to empower and engage young people, ages 18-35, to build our own political power through full civic participation in the political process. Through trainings in civic education, leadership and campaign development, they identify the issues that effect us and use various tactics to influence public policy.

Their goal is to continue to build power in our communities and force politicians to make our issues their issues, with young black voters.

Black Youth Vote! is focused on supporting voter registration and GOTV efforts in seven states, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan and Texas, and will be utilizing the 6th Annual Civic Leadership Conference in Atlanta, GA to train and empower young people nation wide in post-election community campaigns.
