Black Student Union at Downtown Campus Rocks the Vote 2017!!

Black Student Union at Downtown Campaign hosted Rock the Vote 2017, a voter engagement celebration on Monday, November 6. This event was the final in a semester-long drive to inform, recruit, and engage voters during the 2017 election season. Other activities included a voter recruitment drive and consistent promotion of voting-related materials at meetings and other events. For the second year in a row, Rock the Vote highlighted Black elected officials and candidates in our community. All parties involved, including the students and the politicians, were encouraged by their interactions with each other. It was an amazing time!
