Electoral Justice League

The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) is now accepting applications for the Electoral Justice League 2019 Fellowship. We will train and resource 10 Black organizers from 10 organizations to serve as political operatives for building black political power in 2020 and beyond. Fellows with the Electoral Justice League will articulate and amplify the Vision for Black Lives - the common issues black people face in their communities - and connect those issues and policy platforms to the electoral work happening in their organizations, cities and around the country.

Just like any other system that doesn’t work for us, we can disrupt the electoral system by demanding justice -- Electoral Justice!
