A Voteless People is a Hopeless People

 

"A Voteless People is a Hopeless People" was initiated as a National Program of Alpha during the 1930's when many African-Americans had the right to vote but were prevented from voting because of poll taxes, threats of reprisal, and lack of education about the voting process. Voter education and registration has remained a dominant focus of this outreach activity for over 65 years. In the 1990's, the focus has shifted to include political awareness and empowerment, delivered most frequently through town meetings and candidate forums.

In 2019, Beta Psi Lambda created FAVS 7,000, which stands for Fighting Against Voter Suppression.  The goal to increase the number of registered voters by 7,000 people at every polling place around the nation by promoting mail-in voting, which has become another target for proponents of voter suppression.
