We are still excited about this win! In Youngstown, 8,185 votes were cast on Tuesday for our #Organize45 endorsed candidate, Jamael Brown. Mayor-Elect Jamael Brown won by a 461 vote margin. The Collective spoke with 1,598 black voters, and don’t forget, Jamael lost his 2013 mayoral bid by 142 votes. Now, in no way can we take sole credit for this win, but we were able to provide additional resources and support, which is critical at the margins in local elections.
His win shows how important that we combine our efforts to #buildblackpoliticalpower in 2017 & 2018. Check out our website and take action today! #throwbackthursday #donations #blackstarpower
