NEW YORK, NY - On Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 8pm EST, ColorOfChange will be hosting a virtual town hall moderated by U.S. Senator Cory Booker to discuss the power of the Black vote this election year.

At this unique political moment, new electoral data and analysis shows that Black people are positioned now more than ever to take the lead politically and win. Steve Phillips, PowerPAC.org Co-founder and author of soon to be released book, Brown is the New White: How The Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority; Glynda Carr, political analyst and Co-founder of Higher Heights, an organization focused on harnessing Black women’s political power, Arisha Michelle Hatch, Managing Director of Campaigns at ColorOfChange and Charlene Carruthers, National Director of the Black Youth Project 100 will focus on key races around the country that Black voters are poised to decide in 2016 and why those races are so important.

Participants will also learn how Black voters can continue to build on the Black electoral power demonstrated in past elections to help end the rampant police brutality on Black lives and the lack of accountability.
