Vote for Justice Campaign

Black Youth Vote! (BYV!) is the youth and young adult civic leadership development and organizing arm of the National Coalition. The BYV! #Vote4Justice Organizing Initiative's goal is to continue it’s legacy of engaging black youth in civic engagement, issue organizing, voter empowerment and voter protection. When BYV! began in 1996, voter turnout for young people was extremely low averaging 17-34 percent. However, over the past decade black youth have led voter turnout in presidential election years, voting at 45 percent in 2012. BYV! Is one of the leading youth led movements focused on training a new generation of black civic leaders, elected officials, advocates, activists and organizers. BYV!’s priority is to connect to protest to public policy through the power of the vote.

Black Youth Vote!
The Next Generation of Black Leadership

Black Youth Vote! (BYV!) is a national grassroots coalition of organizations and individuals committed to increasing political and civic engagement among black youth and young adults between the ages of 18-35. On April 4, 1996, BYV! was launched under the theme “The Ballot, Not the Bullet” live on CSPAN to address the chronic decline in Black youth voter participation.
