Yo. Did you hear👂🏽Milwaukee on @NPR Weekend Edition? We can thank @angelamlang for that. The @nprweekend piece digs into why Angela founded BLOC — Black Leaders Organizing for Communities (@blocbyblocmke). Her secret? Listening.
“Lang says that if voters know anything about politicians, it's that they're constantly talking about themselves — their story, their campaign, their talking points. BLOC's ‘silent canvass’ asks them to do the opposite and simply listen.”
In the weeks leading up to the recent WI primary, BLOC organizers knocked on more than 18,000 Milwaukee doors. ⚡️ Thank you @lowrylemma for introducing @mrmikedelarocha and me to her! Make sure to follow Angela on IG.
