Anti-voter suppression and civil rights activist Andrea Miller to appear at events throughout the Bay Area, September 28-October 2, 2019 for "Reclaim Our Vote"
Andrea Miller, a nationally-known, Virginia-based leader in the fight for voting rights for people of color, will speak at numerous events in the Bay Area during the period September 28 - October 3, about her campaign to contact millions of voters of color for the Virginia statewide elections in November, and for the federal elections in 2020.
Miller is the founding board member and digital strategist for the Center for Common Ground, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Virginia. In 2017 the Center launched the national Reclaim Our Vote Campaign, a nonpartisan outreach campaign to fight voter suppression and turn out the vote among people of color. Reclaim Our Vote works in partnership with Black Voters Matter, Mi Familia Vota, the NAACP, DemLabs, and many other organizations.
Locally the Reclaim Our Vote campaign is nothing less than a movement, with hundreds of Bay Area activists writing postcards or phonebanking to voters of color throughout the south and in various other voter-suppression states like Arizona, Texas and Pennsylvania--
