Dear Black Voter
About This Show
Local and state elections matter. If you're not voting with knowledge, you're not voting with power. Dear Black Voter is a six-part series on voter education. We dive into deadlines, statistics, the roles & duties of elected officials, key issues for African-American voters and so much more. New episodes are released every other Tuesday.
This Chicago Urban League podcast is produced in partnership with journalist Dometi Pongo, our President and CEO Shari Runner and VP of External Affairs Calmetta Coleman.
Available on iTunes, Soundcloud, and all other podcasting platforms. | Videos, shownotes and resources available at CULPodcast.com.

While large numbers of young people have become active in issues of social justice in recent years, this hasn't this translated into civic engagement. Community organizer Kofi Ademola joins Dear Black Voter to shed some light on this disconnect.
