In February, CURE’s Dr. Judy Lubin joined community organizations in South Florida and South Carolina to engage voters who care about racial justice and want to understand where the candidates stand on our issues. The event titled Racial Justice 2020: Voting & Building Power for a Just Future explored policy issues, CURE’s 2020 Racial Justice Presidential Scorecard, voter engagement and how we can build a just future together.
On February 19, we joined South Florida People of Color at the Miami Theater Center in South Florida. The event featured opening remarks by Dr. Lubin followed by a panel discussion with Dwight Bullard of the New Florida Majority, Jo Hanna “J” Thompson of the National Black Women’s Justice Institute, Francesca Menes of The Black Collective and Ruben Roberts of the NAACP.

Later that week on February 22, we joined USC Upstate’s NAACP chapter in South Carolina to bring a community discussion about voter mobilization to the Black History Month Festival. The event was attended by students and the general public. Also, there were field offices of several presidential candidates in attendance.
