African American Voter Registration, Education, & Participation Project

Increasing African American and urban voter registration, education, and participation through outreach to targeted communities in California. We've registered over 175,000 voters and counting since 2002!

Oh, what a night!

On Thursday we held the 13th annual Juneteenth fundraiser for AAVREP. The funds raised will help power our work of registering and turning out voters in LA County this fall. And we raised over half a million dollars!

Watch a montage of images from the AAVREP 13th Annual Juneteenth Celebration in Los Angeles, while listening to GRAMMY winner Lalah Hathaway. Performances also from Torre Brannon Reese and the Street Corner Renaissance, and jazz great Barbara Morrison.

Watch a slideshow of personal photographs from the event.
