The Democratic Black Caucus of South Carolina is announcing a statewide 2019 Minority Voter Listening Tour kicking-off in February 2019. As the newest caucus of the South Carolina Democratic Party, the Black Caucus was formed with the specific goal of giving minority Democrats an organized voice within the party and the “We Hear You” Minority Voter Listening Tour” represents our commitment to that promise.
Designed to determine the concerns and views of minority voters in South Carolina, the “We Hear You” Minority Voter Listening Tour” will offer a safe-space for those who have felt marginalized by the party to voice their priorities for the next election cycle and play a role in helping to refine the party’s campaign message and improve the Democratic party’s chances of taking back the White House next year and increasing the number of democratic elected officials across the state at all levels.
Johnnie Cordero, Caucus chair has expressed how necessary these listening sessions will be to the future of the Democratic party in South Carolina saying,
“African Americans are invested in the Democratic Party like no other constituency. We cannot abandon it now. It is time for the Democratic Party to give more than lip service to the needs and concerns of its core constituency. Change cannot wait” the democratic party must, at very least, be democratic.”
