This paid training opportunity follows a train-the-trainer model and will prepare 50 young people to go into their communities as voting rights advocates. During this 4-day Training, there will be 22 panels from 47 experts, as well as one of the panels being at the Congressional Black Caucus’ Annual Legislative Conference, a community engagement project in Northern Virginia, and a press conference on “Power on the Line: Alabama’s Defiance of the Supreme Court”.

Today’s guests are all presenters and two former graduates from previous trainings: Tanya Clay House, Esq. and Robin Shine Maddox will be on a panel for “A Woman’s Body, A State Government’s Choice: The Impact of the Dobbs Decision”; Jerome Dillard will be on the working lunch panel “The Battle For Full Citizenship: Fighting Felony Disenfranchisement & Promoting Restoration of Voting Rights”; Edward Ward and Joshua Raby, alumns of the program, will be presenters for “The Elevator Pitch: 60 Seconds to Convince A Voter” as well as Team Leaders during the entire Training; and, Dianne Wilkerson is on the “War on Woke: Florida, Mickey Mouse, Book Banning, DEI & Voting” panel.

Since 2016, TJC has invested in trainings to enhance the leadership skills of those 18 – 35 years of age. This will represent the 15th such training and activation for Gen Z’s and young Millennials.                      


  • We are happy to welcome the Deputy Secretary for the USDA. Deputy Secretary Rainge, please tell our audience about your position. What are the duties for Deputy Secretary of Civil Rights for the USDA?
  • On Friday, July 7th, the USDA announced this $2.2 billion fund for Black Farmers. Why did the USDA announce this fund?
  • Let’s talk about some specifics of this fund. Who is eligible? 
  • Let’s discuss who can apply and how can they apply to this new fund?
  • How do we best outreach to all of these farmers, particularly Black farmers, who are eligible?

  • What are your final thoughts to our listeners? Thank you for all of your hard work. How do our listeners get in contact with you?
  • Thank you, Dr. Malveaux. As Board Chair for PUSH EXcel, how do you view Rev. Jackson’s announcement of his pivot? What impact will that have on the fight for racial justice in the United States?
  • We’re here at the RPc Convention. One of Rev Jackson’s most amazing accomplishments has been in the area of voting rights. Today there are significant voting rights developments, including the introduction of the Freedom to Vote Act. Last week, the GOP introduced their attempt to federalize voter suppression called the American Confidence in Elections Act. How do you expect Rainbow PUSH, with Rev. Dr. Frederick D. Haynes, III and Rev. Jackson, will be a leader to pass the FTVA and to oppose the ACE Act?
