Voting is step one in the engaged citizen dance.
Step two is paying attention to policy. After you vote, please support events like Black Policy Day on February 15, 2023. #savethedate
BBG readers are invited to join the (WV) Black Voters Impact Initiative on this zoom link today at 6 pm to prepare for Black Policy Day at the Capitol and supportive events.
The goal of this meeting is to start the collaborative process of planning and implementing Black Policy Day to build statewide civic engagement.
BBG is planning to support Black Policy Day with our special Policy Issue that will be delivered to every state lawmaker, co-hosting the "Young. Black & Gifted In WV Policy" event and the launch of the Folk Reporters program to cover legislative committee meetings.
In addition to Black Policy Day Issue prep, we have a lot of work to do in organizing BBG’s advisory board, nonprofit and strategic plan.
However, thanks to your support, I feel capable of leading BBGinto the next chapter.
