BlockPower is a nonprofit focused on increasing voter turnout among Black citizens who don’t vote regularly. BlockPower pays people in majority-Black neighborhoods to be “Voting Ambassadors” and talk with their friends, family members, and neighbors about the importance of voting.
BlockPower signed up more than 10,000 Ambassadors, who recruited almost 35,000 “Vote Triplers” in nine key states for the November 2020 election.
Join us as we sign up more Ambassadors and Triplers every day across Georgia to ensure Black voices are heard loud and clear in the January 5th runoff elections and beyond.
SCOPE50’s primary purpose is to promote and encourage voter registration nationally, and to assist with “get out the vote” activities throughout the country.
SCOPE50 is a non-partisan organization. We will not work for nor support any candidate or party. We will not be in opposition to any candidate. Our main purpose is voter registration and educating people on a grassroots level on the responsibility of citizenship.
SCOPE50 works in various communities on voter registration and political education. We partner with local community organizations, institutions, and churches, for example, the League of Women Voters. Also, we go into high schools and encourage juniors and seniors to register to vote and teach them about the importance of voting. We will go to colleges as well to promote voter registration. Future programs might include working to improve literacy and basic educational skills and fighting childhood poverty. SCOPE50 will also work to preserve the history of SCOPE and the Civil Rights Movement by sharing documents and other items with historical associations and institutions, such as the Library of Congress.
Focus 2020 is a grassroots group of professionals contributing our time and talents pro bono to help safeguard our democracy, expand the electorate, and ensure free and fair elections. and maximize their impact.
Change The Ref (CTR), was formed to empower our Future Leaders. CTR gives the kids of today the tools they need to be empowered to make changes to critical issues that affect our nation, through education, conversation, and activism. It uses urban art and nonviolent creative confrontation to expose the disastrous effects of the mass shooting pandemic.
It also brings focus to the NRA’s corrupt maneuvers to buy lawmakers, while forcing solutions which are essential to healing mass shooting victims’ families’ lifelong grief. Change The Ref’s ultimate goal is to give the young generation of survivors and victims a disrupting voice to help lead the way to change – a more peaceful future. #NeverAgain.
The Loss of 17 lives on February 14th, 2018 at MSD High School in Parkland, Florida due to yet another mass shooting, caused a conversation to erupt in our country and around the world and a youth movement to be born. CTR is an organization created to fuel the youth of today, empowering them to lead the way and make impactful changes happen.
Founded in the memory of their son Joaquin who was one of the 17 victims, Manuel and Patricia Oliver are committed to making sure that their son’s life and the lives of the other 16 victims are never forgotten and that real change happens to prevent future tragedies like this from happening ever again.
The only way that will occur is if we have the ability engage the next generation and the generations after to get involved, fight for their values and beliefs and have their voices heard!
To empower our next generation so they can fight for their values, have their voices heard, and impact change for their future.
