Congressional Black Caucus Launches ‘Summer of Action’

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) this weekend plans to launch its “Summer of Action,” in which caucus members will partner with local officials, community organizations, HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), civil rights groups, and members of Divine Nine organizations to identify key issues and increase voter turnout in 2024, reports The Hill.

The “Democracy for the People” event will kick off Saturday in Charleston, S.C. Target cities include Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Houston, and New Orleans.

The CBC’s aim is for organizers to work on voter education and efforts to get young voters, Black men, and citizens who were previously incarcerated to the polls. The CBC also wants its fellows to be trained properly on how to mobilize and educate communities around many of the issues that have disproportionately affected Black Americans.
