This Giving Tuesday Pennywise is proud to increase our support for the Black Voters Matter Capacity Building Institute’s (BVM).
The Pennywise Giving Tuesday grant will support BVM’s efforts in advance of the historic US senate runoff elections in Georgia. BVM and their partners will conduct “get out the vote” campaigns in nearly 50 counties/cities in Georgia with a special focus on rural Black communities. In addition to phone and text voter outreach and distribution of voter information materials BVM will also conduct caravans for voter registration and to get out the vote and offer rides to the polls and parties at the polls on run-off election days.
Consider a directed gift to BVM today because BLACK VOTERS MATTER!
