2020 will be our year. 

It is not only the year of the next presidential election;  it is also the year of the next U.S. Census.  

To help inform and inspire the work of black alumni groups, associations and networks, the 2020 Black Alumni Summit conference theme will be on motivating civic engagement, voter registration, census participation, and local political leadership. 

 

There are discounted rates for current students, Trailblazing Alumni (those who graduated in the 60s and 70s), and groups of 7 or more.

CONFERENCE GEAR

Be sure to pack your university gear for the conference time during Friday and Saturday (comfortable and casual with your university logos),  dress to impress for our evening activities (think upscale tailgate for our nights out on the Tallahassee town), and university pride for our Community Service Day on Sunday (comfortable clothes with university logos).  Don't forget to bring your university flags and swag to #CelebrateYourSchools!

 One of the most important parts of the conference will be a Community Voter Registration Drive, which will be on Sunday, March 1, 2020 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm on FSU's campus.  For young men and women throughout Tallahassee, this can be an incredible opportunity to learn about civic participation and leadership, and also to become registered in time to vote for the national election in November.  We'll be partnering with Black Voters Matter, League of Women Voters, and Color of Change for the day, which will be full of fun activities and opportunities to increase our awareness and discourse about civic participation, especially as it relates to community affairs and leadership. 

The Voter Registration Drive will be at the FSU Black Student Union House 

921 W. Jefferson Street

Tallahassee, FL 32304.
