THE NATIONAL COALITION ON BLACK CIVIC PARTICIPATION (NCNCP) and AMERICAN URBAN RADIO NETWORKS (AURN) have combined to launch a non-partisan radio campaign to encourage people to register, verify their names on voter rolls and then vote on election day.
“AURN has a direct line into the hearts and minds of our target audience,” said MELANIE CAMPBELL, Exec.Dir/CEO of NCBCP. “We’re delighted AMERICA’s largest African-American owned radio network company has joined with us to educate voters, protect our vote and turnout the Black community in record numbers in this historic election.”
JERRY LOPES, President of Program Operations and Affiliations for AURN added, “NCBCP has a long history of making sure people participate in a process that our ancestors died for. As a radio network reaching 20 million African-Americans weekly, we’re pleased to join hands with them to ensure people participate in this most basic and fundamental right.”
