Community Organizing

Voice Your Vote: Integrated voter engagement program, working to normalize voting in the Black community by increasing the turnout of Black women ages 18-49 in Allegheny County in every election. New Voices was founded on the principle of civic engagement and has engaged Black women in every Presidential Election since we began. This program makes 40,000 contacts each year and employs 45 part-time workers who phone bank and canvass. New Voices is building voting power!

#ThisBlackBody: We believe Black women, femmes, girls and folx in Pittsburgh have been articulating the disparities that the report affirms since 2004 when our movement for #ReproJustice began in the Rust Belt. #ThisBlackBody is a campaign that New Voices for Reproductive Justice created earlier this year to address the health and well-being of Black communities in Pennsylvania and Ohio. To join us for the first #ThisBlackBody campaign meetup in Pittsburgh, email us your contact information at thisblackbody@newvoicespittsburgh.org.
