One of the nation’s largest healthcare union in the nation tapped into the power of hip-hop to encourage voting in the upcoming November 6 election.
Young Gets It Done & 1199 SEIU hosted a Get Out The Vote Rally over the weekend at Morgan State University’s campus.
A huge hip-hop concert was sponsored by Black Girls Vote, The Collective PAC, and Planned Parenthood to encourage millennials to vote.
Rapper Dave East, G Herbo, Shiggy, Bri Steves, Ari Lennox, LGP Qua, Marcus Black (VH1/Love & Hip Hop Hollywood), and DJ Flow were on hand for the rally, which was hosted by Revolt TV’s Scottie Beam and BET’s Gia Peppers.
“Here in Maryland the future of the state is on the dais and young people will certainly determine what the future holds.” – Marvin Bing, the event producer of Young Gets It Done.
Bing said he helped the event to “organize, educate, and get young voters in Maryland excited during the Early Voting period and keep them excited through Election Day.”
“Young people — will define the politics of this year, and probably 2020 as well,” added Marvin Bing.
