On Saturday March 24, Hip Hop Caucus—led by Pace e Bene board member Rev. Lennox Yearwood—joined the March for Our Lives to help focus the calls for change on getting youth out to vote in November. With their Respect My Vote! team, they had an army of hundreds of volunteers to register young voters.

 

Vic Mensa and Wanda Durant helped inspire volunteers in DC while Common and Kanye West were marching to show Hip Hop’s support for the movement. In total between Headcount, Rock the Vote, Voto Latino, and Hip Hop Caucus, they registered over 1,500 voters from more than 40 states.

Rev. Yearwood writes, “This movement is not about political party. It’s about lives and justice for our communities. It’s about empowerment of young people heading to the polls. . . . As we continue to March For Our Lives – lives like Stephon Clark’s – let’s stay focused, stay organized, and prepare for what’s next. Join us, make sure you’re registered and prepared for November.”
