The Duval County Chapter of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida invited diverse community leaders to participant in a focus group on voting. Researcher Ann Gerhardt from California has engaged numerous, similar groups across the country and agreed to work with Jacksonville to engage black and brown voters for the 2020 elections.
The panel discussion focus group was held at the Brentwood Library on Saturday, November 18th and was conducted in two hours intervals between 8 a.m. and 5 pm. Attendees participated in round table that analyzed various fliers and Democratic messages that will be revised to hopefully diminish sporadic voting processes and increase engagement.
Given the current political climate, Democrats have vowed to be proactive and prepared to transform the landscape of policies in America.
