Service + Solidarity Spotlight: CBTU Launches ReadySetVote Website with Resources for Voters


Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, led by President Melvin, launched ReadySetVote, its voter resource website Wednesday. This online digital tool is designed to help visitors check their voting status, register to vote and volunteer for the upcoming election. With a few clicks, any visitor can also get information about absentee ballots, early voting and polling locations in their area. This one-stop site also offers a voter education video that features CBTU members and leaders sharing their views on issues that will motivate Black voters and how best to mobilize communities under siege most impacted by COVID-19 and systemic racism.
