With four million Americans turning 18 years old in 2020 and eligible to vote, Carolyn DeWitt, president of Rock the Vote said “This is no ordinary year.” She continued: “Rock the Vote was built to support young people and in this moment when young people are showing their power and demanding action, we are honored to launch Democracy Summer. Artists, influencers, elected officials and activists are joining together to help sustain the fire lit by America’s youth and build a movement to the polls to elect leaders who will take action.” The live stream will raise funds for Black-led and focused organizations including the National Action Network and Community Justice Action Fund, among others.
