Black Folks Day on the Hill” (BFDOH) is an opportunity for individuals, organizations, and supporters, interested in doing direct work and advocacy around policies impacting the black community, to talk with legislators about our stance on these issues. Proposed and passed legislation of the new white house administration place Black communities at great risk of being further abused, underfunded, and marginalized. Hill Visits are a a proven tactic, that allows constituents to directly articulate a position on a piece of policy to their elected officials. Hill visits are a tangible way to show mass support for an issue or political agenda. It is also an opportunity to inform or persuade officials to support that position.
SisterReach and our partners believe it is important that Black people are seen and respected as viable stakeholders whose voices and lived experiences matter to their elected officials. BFDOH is a vehicle to achieve this outcome. Our presence in our state capitols matters. We invite you to participate in our 2020 Black Folks Day on the Hill.
