Black Leaders Organizing for Communities (BLOC) Joins CPD Network

Please help us welcome BLOC from Wisconsin to our growing, powerful network of affiliates! In a state voted the worst place in United States to raise a Black child and bearing the highest incarceration rate for Black men in the entire country, BLOC is building grassroots power on the ground to try and create the conditions in which Black families can fully thrive.

Since its launch in December last year, BLOC’s team has already knocked on over 8,000 doors, engaging community members on the issues that matter most, and pushing themselves to dream big for a new Wisconsin. In the aftermath of Wisconsin’s rightward shift in 2016, BLOC is ensuring that Black Wisconsin votes are not merely chased for national electoral gains, but rather, that high turnout through transformational engagement, deep political accountability, and new, representative leadership is the true path forward. We’re thrilled to welcome BLOC, led by Executive Director, Angela Lang into the CPD network. Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date with their incredible work!
