Political pundits gasped as a surge of Alabama Black women voters secured a victory for U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones in 2017.
But these women were simply doing what they do best - protecting the interests of our people. Today, Woke Vote - one of the organizations responsible for engaging this untapped voting bloc - has a new opportunity for you to join the fight that could change your community for the better.
Across 10 states, Woke Vote is hosting a paid fellowship program in which participants receive eight weeks of training in campaign operations, faith outreach, social media/digital organizing, fundraising and more.
Their mission is to activate leaders that care about issues like mass incarceration, voter suppression, urban gun violence, etc. so that unregistered and disengaged voters within their community can gain greater political power.
Woke Vote hopes this important work attracts those who are frustrated with the way things are, yet are unsure of where to even begin to build a strong grassroots movement.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been checked out of politics, are still in school, retired, or in any other busy stage of life. There is a space within this movement for you.
The application process closes on May 31st at 5pm. To explore more details about the program and submit an application, visit www.wokevote.us and learn more.
