Black Voices Create Culture
Black voices create art, trends, movements, and most importantly, Black voices create change.
Thanks to the overwhelming amount of engaged fans and our four amazing TikTok partners (Taylor Cassidy, Zira B, Jonathan Bynoe, & Jailyn is Feliz), Gushers and Fruit by the Foot reached our donation goal of $400k to the NAACP Youth & College Division! These funds will help support this generation of change makers.
Thanks to those who attended the NAACP Youth & College Division’s MARCH Beyond the Madness New Activist Trainings every Tuesday in March. The work never ends.
We will continue to elevate young Black voices in places where they have been suppressed and celebrate what #BlackVoicesCreate. Join us in this commitment to continue elevating young Black voices by:
- Diversifying your social media feeds
- Reposting content from and giving credit to Black creators
- Share your own message about the power of what #BlackVoicesCreate on social media
The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) Youth & College Division serves over 25,000 people under the age of 25 across all 50 states.
Through our partnership, the NAACP Youth & College Division will be able to bring heightened awareness to important issues affecting Black youth today, like combating racial injustice and increasing voter education. The financial support will help fund programs to increase leadership development, recruitment, and organizing for campaigns promoting education, equality and safety.
