The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP) is thrilled to embark on a new community engagement partnership with Airbnb to commemorate the 51st anniversary of the Voting Rights Act that was signed into law by President Lyndon Baines Johnson on August 6th, 1965 following Bloody Sunday in Selma, Alabama. We believe Airbnb is in a unique position to serve as a good corporate citizen by sharing this historic moment to a new generation the importance of voting to bring about positive social change in our nation. NCBCP is launching our Unity '16 Online Voter Registration Drive and Black Youth Vote HBCU Community #Vote4Justice Challenge in partnership with Airbnb to encourage Millennials of color to register to vote, verify their registration status, volunteer to be poll workers and poll monitors; and vote in the Presidential Election on November 8, 2016.
