"During the Democratic National Convention in August, Cozzie Watkins of North Carolina said: 'I’ve been doing this for a long time, so let me just be plain: Black people, especially Black women, are the backbone of this party and if we don’t show up, Democrats don’t get elected.'
Black voters, in key states such as MI, WI, GA, and PA seemed to show up for the Biden-Harris Ticket. A majority of these voters reside in Detroit, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. Through grassroots mobilization with organizations like Fair Fight and Black Voters Matter Fund, Black women like Stacy Abrams and LaTosha Brown showed us that registering and mobilizing voters is how candidates win elections. With Exit Polls showing that 91% of Black women supported the Biden-Harris ticket, it is clear that Cozzie Watkins was correct."
