This civic engagement initiative wields the power of design to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2020 general election, as well as local elections to come. The core of the campaign is an online gallery of original, nonpartisan posters generated by AIGA members for printing and public distribution.
Black women played a significant role in the woman's suffrage movements. Ida B. Wells and many other great women helped start and put countless hours into white women receiving the right to vote. But once this battle was won, black women were not afforded that right. We had to fight another 45 years before the Civil Rights Act of 1965 was passed. This poster takes a moment to gives honor to all the black women who put their lives on the line for the 1920 19th amendment. The poster hopes to remind everyone that these black women's voices mattered back then, and Black women's voices matter now. As 100 years have passed since the 19th amendment was passed, let us be thankful that we don't have to wait another 45 years to let our black voices be heard in the 2020 election. Remember, we need to vote in both local and national elections. Black Lives Matter and Black Voices Matter, and Black Votes Matter.
This poster was a part of a tryinging exhibition and other promotional event leading up to the elections.
