BLOC Envisions the Future Wisconsin

On March 15, CPD Wisconsin affiliate Black Leaders Organizing for Communities (BLOC) moderated a conversation with Former Attorney General Eric Holder about the importance of redistricting and the upcoming WI Supreme Court race. BLOC has been working with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee for the last several months.  

Over 60 people joined BLOC’s Angela Lang and Holder to discuss the significance of redistricting, particularly to African American communities, and what is at stake in the upcoming state Supreme Court race this fall. General Holder mentioned the importance of supporting groups like BLOC and talking to people about elevating our collective voices in the political process, no matter how difficult it may feel. BLOC was able to spend a few minutes talking to the Attorney General about the work they are accomplishing on the ground, and stories from the community.

Watch the event livestream on BLOC’s Facebook page, and read about it in the Milwaukee Courier, CBS, and WPR.
