The Texas Coalition of 100 Black Men Chapters (Austin, Beaumont, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, West Texas) came together at the Capitol to support House Bill 88 (George Floyd Act) during the 87th Texas Legislative session.  The Coalition spoke with legislators to find ways to support the bill at the Capitol and was acknowledged on the House floor.  100 members also held a reception and luncheon to support our initiatives as 100 chapters and spoke with members of the Black Caucus.


The 100 Registers 5,500 Texas Voters During COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, The 100 Black Men of Austin, Inc. had to pivot their voter registration efforts.  To keep our members safe, we partnered with Defend Our Future to create a contactless effort to increase voter registration across the state of Texas and created a voter registration PSA that ran on local tv stations.  A direct mailer of 61,000 pre-printed voter registration forms were mailed in July in hopes of a 5% (3,000+) return.  As of December 1st, we safely registered over 5,500 voters.  Of the 61,000 voter registration forms, 21% (12,810) registered and voted in the 2020 elections.

13 of our members were also registered Voter Deputy Registrars (VDRs) and volunteered in Travis County to increase in-person voter registration.
