Let’s all take a breath to celebrate the awe-inspiring power of organizers of color, whose tenacious work over more than a decade, allowed voters who have been ignored for so long, to lift their voices for freedom and be heard! Let’s celebrate the funders and donors who have been trailblazers in philanthropy by believing in and supporting their work.

This weekend, I got a text from La’Tasha D. Mayes, President and CEO of New Voices for Reproductive Justice and former Groundswell Board Member:

“Thank you Groundswell, for believing in and investing in our vision for Black women in Pennsylvania and Ohio. And for the foresight of the IVE [Integrated Voter Engagement] program. In a global COVID-10 pandemic while we organized for Black lives, we outreached nearly 800,000 times to Black women voters in both states — over half a million times in PA — reaching 40k Black voters through nearly 590,000 calls, 95,000 texts, and other efforts.”
