Let My People Vote is unique and effective.
Let My People Vote is a Black Women-led, bold, ongoing, collaborative electoral justice program with New Era Colorado. Through Let My People Vote, Black Women work toward healing our communities via relational voter engagement work as we have for centuries. Working to enfranchise all voting-age Black people and cultivate robust and sustained Black political participation, Let My People Vote is a non-partisan, voter engagement/electoral justice program that has the following objectives:
- Provide ongoing, sacred opportunities for Black Women to speak their needs to elected officials toward passing policies that improve Black Women's lives
- Increase Black voter registration and Black voter participation
- Mobilize Black Women and grassroots Black Women-led groups to fight for reproductive justice
- Increase the political participation and power of young Black people
- Host healing gatherings for Black Women addressing the trauma that results from the electoral brutality that Black people have endured for generations in the United States of America.

To create the kind of change our communities are demanding, Congress must pass HR1 - The For the People Act - a once-in-a-generation democracy reform package to clean up our political system, get big money out of politics, hold elected officials accountable for corruption, expand and protect voting rights, and create a democracy that values the voices of all Americans.
