Building Black Political Power through Black Giving

August 22 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

#CourtneyCoversCleveland proudly sits on the Marketing Committee for The Soul of Philanthropy Cleveland. I’m looking forward to attending this event!

Building Black Political Power through Black Giving will be an engaging, high-energy community conversation focused on building and strengthening the leadership of black led organizations/movements centered around building black political power. We’re convening national experts and local organizations to highlight the importance and significance of the black vote/political leadership. The panelist will explore movement building, infrastructure development, approaches to resourcing social change and bring into focus the high stakes.

5:00-6:00 – Networking | 6:00-7:30 Panel Discussion

Speakers & Guests: Stephanie James & Quentin James (The Collective PAC), Daniel Sydnor (NAACP Cleveland), Erica Anthony (Cleveland VOTES & NPI), and Brother Jeff Johnson.

  • Stop telling me there’s nothing to do in #Cleveland and try something new! That’s exactly why I started #courtneycoverscleveland we have to get out of our comfort zone and try something new! Thank you @yachtparty216 for taking us out on the water! The last time I was on your boat was 2014 and I was asking my bridesmaids to be in my wedding!

  • 7:30am Checking in for Week 3 of the #NuLife28DayChallenge @nulifefitnesscamp after 4 workouts, a week eating a balanced diet including lots of veggies and fish (and a slice of pizza) - a few glasses of wine and a visit from Mother Nature... I didn’t lose or gain any weight and I feel great! Someone asked me who I was trying to impress and my response was ME! This challenge, my surgery, my commitment to being fit and healthy isn’t for anyone else- it’s all for me! .

Fun fact @mieshanulife gifted me these shorts at my bridal shower in 2014! They came with a matching tank and a note that said wear this during the day so you can wear this at night, and then there was a second gift lol. It was a gift with meaning that I’d never forget - so glad i can fit them again!
  • Last nights @tsopcle event Building Black Politcal Power Through Giving Black was nothing short of amazing! As someone who considers themselves informed and involved in the community, I was absolutely shocked by how much I did not know about politics! The amount of information I learned was unbelievable and the statistics shocking! Thank you @collectivepac @qjames007 @stefbrownjames for all the work you are doing! I wish I knew all this information sooner. We have to teach our kids how the political system works. “POWER is the ability to change the rules”- @qjames007 .

Whatever percentage we make up in this country should be the same percentage reflected in leadership, and unfortunately that’s not case! Like @dollarsandsensewithd @clevelandvotes  I am eager to educate our community. We need more representation in politics, we need more people of color TRAINED to run for office, we need to share there are easy ways to help candidates fundraise! We have to do better, we have to make it clear black leadership matters.
#courtneycoverscleveland May run for office one day!
