TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 19th

The nation’s biggest nonpartisan civic holiday dedicated to getting every eligible American registered to vote when organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to local food banks and public libraries join forces for a nationwide democracy blitz to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities through in-person events and virtual events, as well as digital, social, and traditional media outreach.
In Ohio alone, more than HALF A MILLION ELIGIBLE BLACK PEOPLE ARE UNREGISTERED TO VOTE. Join us, to make certain they have an opportunity to get registration ready as a key step to participating in the fall 2023 election.
