Sunday Supper Series 

The Sunday Supper Series aims to mobilize young Black and Brown voters around the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election. These events highlight innovative civic leadership and activism, while providing young leaders with a platform to connect with their community and provide their peers with critical information on Voter Education and the 2020 Census. Through the pursuit of “education, empowerment, and energy”, participants engage in discussion on difficult topics, including policing and voter suppression, and then engage in activities geared to empower and energize young activists, nationwide, to take an active role in the upcoming 2020 election by phone-banking, volunteering, voting, and other avenues to engage politically in their local and national communities. We are proud to partner with the incredibly bright leaders of Quarantine Con on this important series.
FACILITATORS: Tyra Beamon,+ Blake Osborne, LI and Tre’Von Hill + Scooter Taylor of QuaranteenCon
