making moves

CRG programs are designed to achieve our primary objective of closing the young voter participation gap that currently exists in Black communities.

Integrated Voter Engagement (Certified)

This program brings civic conversations and voter registration to places where young people socialize, work, and live. By maintaining conversations that integrate civics with popular culture and local concerns, we can increase voter registration for young people.

Research (Spin the Block)

CRG hosts focus groups aimed at collecting data regarding young people’s perspectives on voting and democracy, which inform our voter engagement strategies. CRG curates focus groups to offer safe spaces for young Black voters to ask questions and vent about the issues they care about the most. These spaces will be used to determine what motivates young folx and how we can capitalize on these motivations to increase activism, community organizing, and movement for community power building.

Plugged In (Digital Organizing)

CRG year-round digital engagement effort meets young voters exactly where they are: in a rapidly changing digital world. The evolution of the internet, as well as COVID-19, posed new challenges to tackle for community outreach and advocacy efforts. CRG is not only equipped to take these challenges head on, but integrates unique solutions to reach young people and marginalized folks. We’re building a solid digital presence with tech tools (ex., QR codes), social media trends, and direct messages to over 1.2 million users. CRG’s digital platform is designed to help close the participation gap that currently exists in Black communities between young voters and older generations.

Return Da Love

Return da Love is our programmatic arm that gives back to our community. We’ve heard firsthand that voters don’t want only to be spoken to when votes are needed. We’ve learned that our community needs support around finding jobs & careers as well as supporting the youth. The toy drives and back-to-school events help relieve the financial burdens that single parents in our target demographic experience. Our intention is to rally support for the communities that we serve so that they see the difference civic engagement can and will have on their daily lives.

These are just a few of our many programs; we continuously implement new ones!
