We’ve teamed up with the Collective PAC to help combat the issue of underrepresentation of African Americans in elected positions of power in the United States. For this project, we sought to promote a fundraiser during the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference to raise money for Black candidates in the 2018 midterm elections.
Our event support, including posters and flyers, helped secure more than 100 people to our event located at Busboys and Poets where the PAC discussed the importance of supporting and funding Black candidates. The event raised nearly $5,000 to support endorsed candidates including newly elected Lt. Governor of Virginia Justin Fairfax, Democratic candidate for Governor of Maryland Ben Jealous, and Democratic candidate for Governor of Florida Mayor Andrew Gillum.
