The New Haven Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the Epsilon Iota Iota Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity co-hosted a voting education forum on Wednesday evening.

Over 70 community members gathered via Zoom to hear from four panelists working in Connecticut and New Haven. The panel, titled “Understanding the Power of Your Vote: What Does Your Vote Do For You?” aimed to encourage communities of color to vote.

Panelists included Bridgeport Mayor’s Initiative for Reentry Affairs Director Earl Bloodworth, State Rep. Bobby Gibson, New Haven President of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Doris Dumas and Ella’s Fund political action committee chairperson Karimah Webber. Panelists were asked a series of questions by two moderators, and then answered questions from the audience.
