This why we, DeKalb Democrats and the Black Caucus of the Young Democrats of Georgia, are doing everything we can to activate Black men into action this election cycle. This Monday, we will have a conversation with panelist Reverend Raphael Warnock (candidate for Senate), Daniel Blackman (candidate for Public Service Commissioner), Councilman Khalid (candidate for mayor of South Fulton), and Mondale Robinson (founder of the Black Male Voter Project) Monday, 8 pm via Facebook Live and Zoom.
