BIPOC to the Ballot Box

BIPOC to the Ballot Box is a nonpartisan public education campaign by the ACLU of Massachusetts and its partners. The campaign aims to build voter awareness and engagement in municipalities with large or growing Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. Through coordinated outreach and knowledge-sharing, BIPOC to the Ballot Box is working to hear from community members about what issues matter most to them, understand the barriers to civic participation, and encourage everyone to use their vote as their voice.
