The Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, November 14th, 2023, from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Eastern Time, entitled, “Celebrating the Peoples’ Electoral Victory: Key Lessons From the November 7, 2023 Elections”, with Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine, Esq. and Daryl Jones, Esq. will feature guests Priscilla Johnson; Raoul Cunningham; and, Jayson Davis. During our show, we will discuss the November 7th election turnout and challenges that voters confronted and overcame. Barbara, Daryl, and guests will also discuss the Jackson election debacle in Mississippi in which thousands of voters were denied the opportunity to cast a ballot. They will discuss next steps for addressing the Mississippi failures.
TJC took its John Lewis bus on the road to GOTV with our partners in Kentucky and Ohio! TJC was on the road from November 2nd – November 7th, Election Day for a weeklong voter engagement today. TJC and its partners, various branches of the NAACP in Kentucky, the Divine Nine, Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, and student leaders at Kentucky State University, the University of Louisville, and Central State University in Ohio, worked vigorously to turn out the vote during the very limited time of early voting in Kentucky, Nov. 2nd – 4th, and on Souls to the Polls Sunday in Cincinnati, Ohio on Sunday, November 5th, and for the General Election in both states on November 7th. TJC has received enthusiastic reactions and has drawn large crowds everywhere it has gone at the above locations and including Shelbyville, Frankfurt, and Lexington. See below for some of the media coverage of TJC’s “Rolling Out The Vote! Kentucky and Ohio” voter engagement events:
Jayson Davis, another TJC Freedom Rider, will discuss why he came all the way from Pennsylvania to be part of this week of Rolling Protests, what he’s learned from this trip, and how this experience has been. He will also discuss the recent march him and 2 other TJC Fellows planned, the Lincoln March to Harrisburg. Over 3 days, 13 Lincoln University students marched 66 miles to demand funding for Lincoln University. “The march stepped off Friday and the students received more than $7,000 in monetary donations from alumni, fraternities and nonprofit organizations to support their cause. But there were also donations from complete strangers who helped out along their journey.” Now, thanks to the march, Lincoln University may get its funding. “A $640 million dollar funding bill for Lincoln University and three other state-related universities made it through the Senate Appropriations Committee Monday and will be voted on the Senate floor on Tuesday. This is in large part thanks to 13 Lincoln University students who marched for three days to send a clear message to lawmakers that they were fed up.
“The students chanted ‘1-8-5-4 the first HBCU for sure’ for three days straight while walking 66 miles through cold and rainy weather from campus to the Pennsylvania State Capitol, where they demanded lawmakers pass a bill allocating $19 million in critical funding for their school…State Sen. Vincent Hughes, along with representatives Jordan Harris, Napoleon Nelson and Joanna McClinton commended the students for their activism, which in turn could impact funding for all state-related universities.”
