Black Voters Matter Capacity-Building Institute

© Dean Charles Anthony II

The goal of the Black Voters Matter Capacity-Building Institute is to increase power in marginalized, predominantly Black communities. The Institute seeks to achieve its goals with the following 5 core beliefs in mind: that the key to effective civic engagement and community power is understanding, respecting and supporting local infrastructure; that Black voters matter year-round, not just on Election Day; that Black voters matter everywhere, including rural counties and smaller cities and towns that are often ignored by candidates, elected officials, and the media; and that the leadership, talent, and commitment demonstrated by Black women in particular must receive recognition and investment.
