Conscious Conversation: Black Political Engagement

From the Facebook event:

This month’s Conscious Conversation, in partnership with The Equity Alliance, Davidson County Democratic Party, and Davidson County Young Democrats, explores the state of black political engagement and how Nashville’s African-American community can raise their voices and take action on issues that matter to their daily lives.

In the age of social media, it’s easy to post our dissatisfaction for politics as usual. But how can African Americans ensure their voices are heard by elected and appointed officials? How do we ensure the African-American community does not get left behind by a changing Nashville landscape? How can the Democratic Party be more inclusive to the issues plaguing the Black community? Lastly, why is civic engagement and voter turnout low among African Americans?

Join us on Wednesday, March 22nd for a roundtable discussion with “young, Black and dope” political leaders to learn how you can become a more informed and engaged citizen. Don’t get mad, get involved! Networking begins at 6pm, followed by roundtable discussions at 6:30 pm.Visit www.consciousconversation.co for additional details.
