The day after our Presidential Primary, there is a webcast you might find interesting, put on by the National Urban League. It is called, “2012 State of Black America Report: Occupy the Vote to Educate, Employ & Empower!”. It will be held at Howard University in Washington, but will also be webcast. It is also posted on the MassVOTE Google calendar. You can sign up for the webcast by going to .

With new voter ID laws and voting rights under attack, the 2012 State of Black America report, “Occupy the Vote to Educate, Employ, and Empower” to be released at a monumental FREE TOWN HALL Event on March 7th at Howard University will urge the nation to “Occupy the Vote” in this important election year.

The report features essays by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, President and CEO of the National Urban League Marc H. Morial, singer John Legend, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, entrepreneur and author Steve Stoute, and a host of other business and civic leaders with prescriptions for the employment and education crisis facing the nation.

FREE and open to the public, the TOWN HALL Event will feature community and thought leaders, a coalition of Civil Rights organizations, and YOU, as we “Occupy the Vote to Educate, Employ, and Empower!” Doors open at 6:00 pm and we hope to see you there!
