BTheNow is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to increasing the awareness of the power of your voice and your vote through education and engagement. Voting is the primary language of a democracy. It is one of the main tools people use to communicate how they wish to be governed.
The goals of BTheNow are to:
Educate individuals on the legislative process and how their vote impacts their communities,
Engage communities in the democratic process,
Inform people how to register to vote, locate their polling locations, and when to vote in federal, state, county, and special elections.
BTheNow has organized and participated in voter registration drives across the country, collaborated with local and national organizations to educate and register thousands of new voters as well as conducted speaker forums with local, state and national leaders to inform voters on issues affecting their communities.
Because of our work in the community, BTheNow received the 2021 Reed Award for the Best GOTV Campaign to mobilize diverse communities. BTheNow was also nominated for a 2021 Rising in Community Excellence Award under Social and Community Impact.
The BTheNow Youth Movement is strategically designed to excite, empower, and encourage young people to attain more knowledge about the democratic process. Middle and High School students are made aware of the importance of voting and community involvement through events and interactions with local, state and national leaders. An emphasis is placed on the historical background of voting, why it’s important to vote, and how the vote affects their communities.
