As the U.S. government continues to be used by forces willing to shut down the services and operations most critical to the people we serve, it remains clear that we cannot and will not ever be shut out.

On Monday, October 9 at 7 p.m. ET join me and my NAACP colleagues for “OUR POWER CANNOT BE SHUT DOWN: The Faith Community’s Role in Voting Rights and Voter Engagement,” a virtual conversation designed to unpack how the faith community can educate, engage, and inspire Black voters to use their voice at the ballot box. As senior pastor of Christ Missionary Baptist Church in Memphis, Tenn., this is a topic I hold dear.
