Yesterday, Biden for President Wisconsin hosted a “National Black Voter Day” event with author and entrepreneur Meena Harris, Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, Common Council President Chevy Johnson and County Board Chairwoman Marcelia Nicholson. At the event, Wisconsin leaders discussed voting rights and encouraged Wisconsinites to make a plan to vote, as Wisconsin ballots are mailed out this week.

“We have so much work to do,” said Meena Harris. “We just have to get across the finish line…We know that the Black vote can and will play a decisive role in the election, especially in Wisconsin. That is a fact… Black voters win elections. We know this. If we vote, we win. If we turn out, we win. It’s more important than ever that we make it clear that the Black community cannot and will not be ignored.”

“Wisconsin ballots started going out this week, and we must work to ensure that every Black voter in the Badger State has a plan to vote, so that we can elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in November. We must make our voices heard…There is an option for everyone to cast their ballot, and we have to work collectively to make sure everyone knows how,” said Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley.
