Getting Out the Black Vote: A Conversation with Horace Small and the Diversity Caucus/GBC

A Conversation with Horace Small
and the Diversity Caucus of DA France

and the Global Black Caucus

Horace Small is Executive Director of Union of Minority Neighborhoods, and a legendary organizer/activist (and personality!) in the Boston area for decades who famously made then-governor Mitt Romney take back his plan to scrap the office of affirmative action for the state

“UMN is rewriting the rules of black politics in Massachusetts, mobilizing some of the state’s poorest citizens to push for their share of the pie. They work for equity, not just equality.” – Boston Magazine.

Today, UNM runs the Black Ballot Power initiative — a non-partisan national campaign to increase Black voter turnout focusing on critical areas of the country.

Why Not Voting Must Not Be an Option!

  • In 2016, nearly half of all eligible voters (46.9%) did NOT vote — over 108,000,000 people
  • Half of all non-voters were non-white
  • Two-thirds were under age 50
  • One-quarter earned less than $30,000 a year.

Black Ballot Power Initiative Will

  • Convince non-voting Blacks that their vote matters
  • Get them registered and to the polls

Join this call with DA France's Diversity Caucus and DA's Global Black Caucus to hear from Horace Small about his work with UMN in Boston, his long and storied career in community organizing and working with neighborhoods, and how he and other community activists and organizers in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio and New York are working to help make sure the black vote turns out and is counted.
