Reclaim Our Vote is a volunteer-driven, nonpartisan voter outreach campaign to fight voter suppression in various states that have been severely impacted by it, especially in the South.   Reclaim Our Vote is organized by the Center for Common Ground of Virginia, with the help of the NAACP, Black Voters Matter, VoteRiders, DemLabs, Mi Familia Vota and other organizations.  This summer and fall we are contacting over 100,000 voters of color, some of whom have been purged from the voter rolls, to ask them to re-register and to vote in important federal and statewide elections.  

Come find out what Reclaim Our Vote is doing right now in North Carolina and Virginia  – and our plans for 2020. We will have delightful hors d'oeuvres, and an online webinar presentation by Andrea Miller, Founding Board Member of Center for Common Ground.
