ABOUT US.

BTheNow is a nonpartisan 501c3 organization dedicated to increasing the awareness of the power of the vote.  In the months leading up to the 2020 Presidential election, BTheNow organized and participated in voter registration drives across the country, collaborated with local and national organizations to educate and register thousands of new voters and conducted weekly speaker forums with local, state and national leaders to inform voters on issues affecting their communities.  Education, engagement, and involvement are key to changing the culture of voting in our communities.

Because of our work in the community, BTheNow won the 2021 Reed Award for the Best GOTV Campaign to mobilize diverse communities.  Our collaboration and execution of the program "50 hours of Spinning for 50 Seats of Winning", in which we mobilized 50 Djs from across the country to consecutively spin music and communicate the importance for Georgians to get out and vote in the Senate runoff, helped get a record number of voters to the polls for the runoff election.  Also, BTheNow was nominated for a 2021 Rice Award under Social and Community Impact.  And we are just getting started.  We will continue to be the bridge that provides information to communities so they have the power to make informed decisions on who gets their vote.
