BLM’s #WhatMatters2020 aims to vigorously engage underrepresented communities in the electoral process, educate the Black community about candidates and the issues that impact Black voters most, promote voter registration among Millennials, Generation Z, the Black community, and allies, and combat the increased threats of disinformation during this election cycle affecting BLM constituents and the public at large.
Vigorously engage our communities in the electoral process:
Millions of Black Americans are repressed within the democratic process, yet data shows Black voters tipped the balance in the 2018 midterm elections. Moving towards 2020, we seek to increase the power of our voices and votes.
Educate our constituents about candidates and the issues that impact us most:
We will amplify and do a deep dive into the issues that affect our communities most and hold our candidates accountable on these issues.
Promote voter registration among Generation Z, the Black community, and our allies:
Demographic shifts means that in the 2020 election, non-whites will account for a third of voters and one in ten voters will be members of Generation Z. We will encourage and provide resources for those seeking to vote.
BLM’s #WhatMatters2020 will focus on the following issues:
- Racial Injustice
- Police Brutality
- Criminal Justice Reform
- Black Immigration
- Economic Injustice
- LGBTQIA+ and Human Rights
- Environmental Conditions
- Voting Rights & Suppression
- Government Corruption
- Commonsense Gun Laws

NEW YORK — New York City renters have access to online resources to help prevent evictions and keep them stably housed with a newly launched tenant resource portal.
“The City is doing everything in our power to support vulnerable families as they deal with a public health and economic crisis,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“With the launch of the Tenant Resource Portal, we are unveiling the first, City-hosted platform where tenants at risk of eviction can go to find a unified directory of all the housing-related resources they may need.”
The portal is the first-ever online platform for the city tenants, which features an eviction prevention tool to help renters navigator free public and private resources that stabilize housing situations.
It is free and available to all residential tenants.
Tenants will have to respond to a series of questions about their circumstances, and will then be directed to their most relevant resources.
Updated information on the general status on NYC evictions will also be available.
Tenants with no internet access can call 3-1-1 and ask for the “Tenants Helpline.”
