THE COLLECTIVE EDUCATION FUND (501c3)
The Collective Education Fund maximizes African American civic engagement at all levels. We ensure that Black voters are an unceasing priority, cultivated and communicated with early and often. We ensure that Black people are prepared to assume positions of legislative and executive power, and have the staffing they need in order to use those positions to the greatest advantage.
The mission of The Collective Education Fund is to maximize African American civic engagement.
The Black Campaign School
Whether called to run, or called to run the campaign, we help those for whom politics is a natural talent and those who need a 101 in the many aspects of running a successful operation.
Launched in 2017, The Black Campaign School is the preeminent training program for Black candidates and Black campaign operatives. Over the next three years, The Collective Education Fund will train upwards of 2,000 Black political candidates and operatives on how to effectively campaign and win critical races through The Black Campaign School.
The Black Policy School
Change happens in many ways, including the incubation of new ideas and the skills required to make those ideas law of the land.
Launching in 2020, The Black Policy School will become the new hub to cultivate, train and deploy Black policy staffers throughout government agencies, legislative bodies, think tanks and advocacy organizations. Our initial cohort of over 300 will build their network and skills through The Black Policy School to create policy wins for the African American community.
Vote to Live
We need to be state-of-the-art data-savvy if we want 100% Black voter registration and participation.
Launching in 2020, Vote to Live is the overarching civic engagement program of The Collective Education Fund & Collective Future. Through partnerships with major Black cultural, faith, fraternal, sororal and higher educational partners, The Collective launched a massive data-acquisition program to target potentially new Black voters through mail, text message and digital advertising to register and turn-out at least 250,000 new Black voters in FL, GA, MI, NC, PA, TX and WI.
