Urban League of Louisiana and Southern Poverty Law Center in partnership with ACLU, League of Women Voters Louisiana, Black Voters Matter, NAACP, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana, Agency Brava, Power Coalition, and Voice of the Experienced look to galvanize groups across the state with a nonpartisan 2023 Louisiana Black & Brown Voter Registration Day on Saturday, September 16, 2023.
This statewide effort will be concentrated in seven targeted cities: Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, New Orleans, Monroe & Shreveport. The goal of this nonpartisan effort across the state is to register as many Black and Brown voters as possible, educate voters on their registration status, and highlight the collective voting power of marginalized communities in our state ahead of the 2023 Gubernatorial Election and the 2024 Congressional Elections.
Organizations and groups are invited to sign up to participate in one or more target cities. Participating organizations will receive training and education on voter engagement laws in Louisiana, as well as strategies and resources to aid in its voter registration efforts on the day of action.
This voter registration initiative builds upon the strong advocacy by nonprofit and legislative leaders in the State Capitol and courts to ensure fair redistricting, fair voting maps, and equitable access to voting throughout the state.
