The 2020 Election has come and gone, and you’re faced with empty hours previously filled by political volunteer actions. Don’t stagnate; the fight to create a more just, inclusive, and democratic world continues. Identify the issue(s) you’re most passionate about, and get involved with one (or more!) of the 3,000 organizations on Mobilize.
If you volunteered in the election to fight for racial justice, then there is still so much work to be done to fight for racial equality. Sign up with different organizations to get educated, lobby for change, and more.

Our favorite past event? Run with Maud
25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery was out for a run when he was chased down and killed by two white supremacists. In order to increase awareness and put pressure on officials to act, the Grassroots Law Project put together Run with Maud. This socially distanced event connected participants around the world by encouraging them to post a picture or photo of them running with #RunWithMaud. This event quickly took over social media feeds and led to the arrests of the two white supremacists. While there is still more work to be done, Run with Maud catalyzed change at the beginning of the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Who are they? Color of Change is a nonprofit civil rights advocacy organization. They work for civil justice by championing progressive solutions and policies.
Our favorite past event? Black Women’s Brunch
This event series brings Black women together for delicious food, community, and discussion. Not only is this a fun, socially-distanced event, but these brunches are also a call to action. Attendees take time to discuss and organize around the issues that deeply impact their communities, and they form broad coalitions to come up with solutions.
