Dear CLSJ Family & Friends,
This holiday and election season finds our country in crisis. As our community navigates through the urgency and obstacles of this year, it’s clearer than ever that our strength lies in unity and a relentless march toward progress, especially in the worst of times.
But even as we vote, we must do more - much more to build up community power.
Our Future Our Vote Campaign
We're inviting you to be part of the powerful and transformative work that the Center for Law and Social Justice at Medgar Evers College (CLSJ) is engaged in. From now through 2025 (and beyond!), we are working to build Black political power with a special focus on Black youth civic and electoral power. Today, we kick off our Brooklyn Gives Campaign to support this vital effort.
Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders
Our Future Our Vote isn’t just a campaign—it’s a promise in action. A promise to prepare the next generation of Black voters, leaders and civic organizers. We’re working to ensure they’re educated, fired up, and ready to lead us into a brighter future.
We’ve set a bold goal: Raise $20,000 from November 1st through December 31st, and we know that with your heart and support, we will make it happen.
Why Rally Behind Our Future Our Vote?
Educate to Liberate: We're serving up knowledge on civic engagement and voter rights, ensuring our folks are well-equipped to make informed decisions and stand tall.
Mobilize the Masses: Through interactive workshops and empowering sessions, we're sculpting our community's future leaders and activists.
Empower Like Never Before: This initiative will spark a chain reaction of empowerment. When we lift the youth, we elevate an entire community. We’re not just educating young voters from our community:
- We’re hiring them as paid interns who will help with civic education, outreach and engagement.
- We’re preparing them to engage in canvassing and dialogues with their peers to encourage more civic engagement.
- We’re partnering with other organization to hyper target traditionally forgotten community members like low wage workers, public housing residents and students.
But we need your help to expand this effort.
