Two of EBAA’s working principles are:
Working for fair and democratic representation, such as putting an end to gerrymandering, protecting and expanding voting rights, and doing voter registration drives
Helping to enfranchise communities of color and other marginalized groups who often encounter voter suppression tactics.
We work with trusted nonprofit organizations to accomplish these goals.
Reclaim Our Vote
We fully support Reclaim Our Vote (ROV), a project of the Center for Common Ground. ROV fights voter suppression and empowers voters of color.
Hundreds of thousands – perhaps millions - of voters of color have been purged from voter rolls, de-registered, and disenfranchised by gerrymandering and voter suppression tactics.
There are eligible voters of color who live in states that have long histories of voter suppression. Reclaim Our Vote has a brilliant strategy for directly engaging them, especially those who live in communities that have been overlooked by conventional campaigns.
ROV has built powerful partnerships with such groups as the NAACP, Black Voters Matter, VoteRider, DemLabs, Mi Familia Vota and others, leveraging emerging opportunities in order to maximize outcomes.
ROV understands the importance of building a lasting base within communities of color.
ROV is volunteer-driven and nonpartisan.
Please help fight voter suppression. Join us in supporting Reclaim Our Vote
