Our special show on September 19 from 12 PM to 1 PM Eastern will continue our discussion from last week on Millennial Votes Matters by highlighting a program being sponsored by the Transformative Justice Coalition featuring prominent rapper, actor and philosopher David Banner as the keynote speaker on Thursday, September 21st, 2:00-5:00 PM at the Washington Convention Center, Room 207 B, during the Congressional Black Caucus’ 47th Annual Legislative Conference! David Banner’s keynote will be part of a two part panel on “Politics, Policy and Power” which will focus on the positive change African Americans can advance through strategic political and policy activism. Admission is free! The first part of the program will composed of a great panel of brilliant young Black elected officials, policy advocates, activists and thought leaders. David Banner will render a keynote during the second part of the program.
The illustrious panel will include Breon Wells, the Daniel Initiative as the moderator; Michael Blake, NY Assemblymember; Samantha Master, African American Leadership Director, Planned Parenthood Federation of America; Ashley Allison, Senior Advisor, The Leadership Conference; Rev. Lennox Yearwood, CEO, The Hip Hop Caucus; Jewell Jones, State Representative, Michigan; and Jeremy McLymont, Attorney General, National Black Law Students Association.
The 2016 Election witnessed a dramatic decrease of 11% of Blacks ballots counted. If this trend continues, African American political power nationally will severely decline. Can African American Millennials be instrumental in restoring Black political power? Interestingly, more young African Americans are running for office with both success and challenges. Can this new generation of leaders be the catalyst for a new body politic? How can Millennials motivate and assist the estimated 6 million plus unregistered Blacks to participate in the franchise? This month has been declared Voting Rights Month to highlight the fight against voter suppression and promote electoral reform such as automatic voter registration. What is the advocacy role of Millennials? As the largest voting Bloc in the U.S. are Millennials, can they organize to dominate the electorate? Could this empowered bloc change American public policy? These questions and more will be covered during the show.
Our guests will include Brenda Ford Harding, chair of the Board of the Transformative Justice Coalition; Breon Wells, the Daniel Initiative; and Joel Bridgeman, Community Engagement Solutions. See guest pictures and bios at www.BarbaraArnwine.com.
David Banner is using his resplendent profile to promote Truth, political awareness and a deepened spirituality. Can we be more than Woke? His keynote will address unleashing the power that Millennials possess through understanding The God Box!
