It’s Time to Close the Racial Civic Participation Gap

Voting participation among people of color in Massachusetts reached a six-year high in 2016. This trend shows a decrease in the voter participation gap in communities of color and the overall electorate. While this is encouraging, much work remains to register and turn out voters of color to close this gap, and many obstacles stand in the way of achieving racial equity in civic participation.

An additional 16,951 people of color need to register to vote, and 179,073 voters of color need to turnout to reach parity. Our key opportunities lie in registering voters of color in gateway cities and increasing turnout in municipal, primary, and midterm elections.

Census 2020

Grassroots Outreach, Education, and Advocacy for a Complete Count

We believe a full, fair, and accurate census, and the collection of useful, objective data about our nation’s people, housing, economy, and communities, is vitally important to equitably determining resources and representation. Massachusetts receives over $10 billion in federal funding for services and programs based on Census counts, including Mass Health, highway planning and construction, special education grants, school lunch programs, Head Start/Early Head Start, health center programs, Low Income Home Energy Assistance, Foster Care, and CHIP. The census has traditionally struggled to get a complete count of low-income communities, particularly those with a high population of communities of color. Ensuring that our communities are properly counted in the 2020 Census is the first step to ensuring that these voters are represented in the redistricting process and policy debate moving forward.
