Milwaukee Urban League urges Black voters to ‘Reclaim Your Vote!’

September 10, 2020

On Saturday, September 5, 2020, The Milwaukee Urban League (MUL) hosted a press conference at its offices, 435 W. North Ave., announcing its new voter engagement initiative, “Reclaim Your Vote.” Partnering with local organizations and business through the upcoming election on November 3, 2020, the “Get Out the Vote” efforts and activities will focus on voter education, registration, participation, and census information at various locations throughout the city.

As a part of the National Urban League’s (NUL) ongoing campaign for civic engagement and voter outreach, Milwaukee has been identified as one of the 13 key cities where “Get Out the Vote” efforts will be critical in this fall’s upcoming elections. NUL has provided a $25,000 grant and technical assistance to the MUL and other selected local affiliates nationwide to launch this initiative to support voter engagement and participation.
