6 PM, Friday, Oct. 30: Real Young Black Men VOTE – And So Much More

Conversation to focus on critical election issues, tragic killing of Walter Wallace Jr.

Return your mail-in ballot

With the 2020 General Election coming up and the tragic killing of Walter Wallace Jr., I wanted to take time to revisit the issues we have been discussing with regards to the Nov. 3 election, as well as the unease young Black men may be feeling during these difficult times. Join me:

Real Young Black Men VOTE
6 PM, Friday, October 30

We will be joined by many of the panelists from the previous conversations who will again share their wisdom and insight on the critical issues. A professional will participate in the conversation to address the collective trauma Black men are experiencing and help foster process responses to the killing of yet another young Black man at the hands of police.

I encourage you to share this event with young Black men who may benefit from this conversation. There will be a lot to discuss, learn and work through.

Understand that voting is the beginning to addressing the issues we face in our nation. The next step is to be active, engaged and involved in the political process, which we will address Friday evening.

Make sure you have a plan to vote! It is too late to return your mail ballot in the mail, so make a plan to get to a satellite election office, drop box or county election office.

More than 1.2 million of the 3 million mail ballots were requested for the 2020 Election have yet to be returned, so we have a lot of work to do. You can get more information about satellite election centers in Philadelphia and across southeastern Pennsylvania at senatorhughes.com/vote. The information found on that site comes from the Department of State, county and local election officials. 

REMINDER: If you’re going to the grocery store, a satellite election center or to the polls on Nov. 3, we need you to wear a mask. It protects you from the coronavirus, as well as those who you may come in contact with while away from home. That is the best thing we can do to protect public health and to slow the spread of the virus.
