The Alliance is working toward state-level systemic change by strengthening the network of elected officials representing communities of color throughout the state and collaborating with a progressive, grassroots networks on intersecting issues. These issues range from voting rights, gerrymandering, criminal justice reform, health and wellness, economic development to education. The Alliance is an intergovernmental network of African American legislators, county commissioners, school board members, and municipal elected officials centered by a commitment to ambitiously address broad issues of inequality and fairness.
The Alliance collaborates with strategic partners to advance the work of those organizations and to enhance intentional collaboration with black constituencies.

Youth Voter Engagement
Our Youth Voter Engagement program partners with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to mobilize young voters of color and provide issue education. Our engagement strategies included planning HBCU Think Tanks and parties at each polling site of our partner HBCUs.
Annually we launch an intentional campaign to poll African American voters in an effort to determine their position on key issues and policies. The results are then shared with community stakeholders to guide strategies and voter education conversations.
