our work

Black to the Ballot registers, engages, and activates Black voters through the Black Agenda 2020 – a policy agenda that translates the Black Census results into a policy platform that empowers Black communities – and national voter registration drive. 

We’ve partnered with 15 Black-led grassroots organizations in 9 states to register 10,000 new Black voters and get 50,000 people to pledge to vote. Check out our incredible partners:

We’re committed to building Black political power. Will you join us?


For too long, people in power have conspired to rig the game, forcing Black people to work twice as hard to barely get half as far in America. We are falling further behind in health and wealth, safety and well-being.

 Black Agenda 2020 works to make Black powerful in every aspect of our lives, including:

The Economy

Remove policies that lock us out of good jobs and invest in the health and wealth of our communities.

Our Democracy

Confront those who conspire to steal our votes and finally build the democracy that is promised to us all

Our Families

Challenge the people and practices that leave us living sick and dying younger and deliver the care we need to live long and live well

Our Society

Reject the toxic culture of white nationalism by calling it out at every opportunity and in front of every audience

Our Communities

Act on the climate crisis as a national priority before more of our communities are hit first and worst by disasters

The Legal System

End the use of incarceration to solve the problem of migration, poverty and disinvestment and return millions of us to our families and communities
