Black Youth Vote!, a project of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP), is raising funds to support "Get Out the Vote" (GOTV) efforts and programming for Black Youth Vote! in preparation for the November 2nd elections. Also on this night, we will honor intergenerational alumni as well as national leaders who have contributed greatly to the cause of empowering black youth between the ages of 18-35 and the overall plight of African-Americans across the country.
