MILWAUKEE — The Collective Education Fund will be teaming up with legendary Dj D-Nice to kick off a nine-city early voting engagement event Saturday, Oct. 24 in Milwaukee.

Vote To Live: Party at the Polls will encourage Black voters in Milwaukee, and other cities to amp up voting numbers in the Black community.

The Milwaukee event on Saturday will be held at the Midtown Center located at 5700 W Capitol Dr., from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.


Alex Edwards, a local community leader in Milwaukee, will be a special guest at the event.

“We’re less than two weeks from Election Day, and the stakes couldn’t be higher,” said The Collective’s Co-founder and Executive Director, Stefanie Brown James. “Over the next 10 days, we need to do everything possible to encourage Black voters to head to the polls and cast their ballots. The Black vote has the power to win this upcoming election and change the course of our current history. To date, we’ve seen more Black voters head to the polls than four years ago, and we’re working hard to continue this moment. We’re launching the Vote to Live: Party at the Polls initiative as a sprint towards Election Day.”
