What is Collective Future?
Collective Future is a 501c4 with a mission to increase civic engagement and political representation of Black communities. Collective Future takes direct action to ensure that equity and justice are represented in the democratic process so that Black political power is real and America delivers on its promise.
Why do we think this project is important?
Collective Future’s 2020 Vote to Live Engagement Program worked to address and amend challenges associated with low voter turnout across Black communities. Through their 2020 Vote To Live campaign, Collective Future engaged Black voters during the 2020 election with strategic outreach to historically Black colleges and universities, sororities/fraternities, and faith communities, as well as conducted a first-of-its-kind voter engagement program utilizing cultural artists and influencers to gamify civic engagement.
How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting Collective Future?
In 2020, Democracy Fund Voice approved a grant of $125,000 to Collective Future.
