Celebrating Black History Month with Higher Heights for America PAC

All month long, we want to elevate the work of some of our amazing partner organizations whose own work focuses on elevating Black voices in politics.

Higher Heights PAC is committed to the election of progressive Black women on federal and statewide levels. Members have secured the largest number of Black women to simultaneously serve in Congress, sent the first Black women to the U.S. Senate in two decades, elected more Black women majors in the United State’s 100 most populated cities, and selected the first Black woman to win a major party nomination for a governor’s office! Learn more about their work, and how you can get involved, at the link below. You’ll also see we’re hosting an event with them coming up next week

NDTC Expert Q&A: Black Voices for Grassroots Change
Thursday, February 15 at 1pm ET

Voter suppression efforts and misinformation campaigns deliberately and disproportionately target Black voters. It’s critical that campaigns and local Democratic parties center and prioritize Black community members, but not only for Election Day.

This insightful panel will bring together three seasoned campaign experts into conversation with one another about organizing Black communities and districts. Learn from their storied backgrounds and get a chance to ask your own questions.
