To Whom Does the Black Vote Matter?

Updated: Aug 2

The Greater Milwaukee Urban League Guild will sit down with party leaders to have the conversation of why the Black voter is important to either party when there seems to be a disconnect of urgency on our issues after the election.


(MILWAUKEE, WI || March 22, 2022) Today, to whom does the Black vote matter?


During the 2020 Presidential election, the Black community had two primary issues: voting rights and police accountability. The National Urban League, along with all of the other affiliates, pushed for these issues to be supported. As it stands neither of these issues has been passed by the U.S. Congress.


Here, we face a midterm election and again both the Democratic and Republication parties have returned to the Black community expressing the importance of voting, more specifically, the importance of the Black vote. But why is the Black vote important, but not issues impacting the Black community?


The Greater Milwaukee Urban League Guild will sit down with party leaders to have the conversation of why the Black voter is important to either party when there seems to be a disconnect of urgency on our issues after the election.


Join the GMUL Guild and community members as the tough questions are asked, hear how the parties set their agenda, who they consult with when planning these platforms and what the long-term commitment is to the Black community.


The GMUL Guild is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates. It does provide an opportunity to raise awareness, present facts, and encourage the community to exercise its civic responsibility by participating in the electoral process.
