Emgage launched a nation-wide nonpartisan Get Out The Vote (GOTV) campaign to turn out one million Muslim voters in the 2020 presidential elections. The organizing team of Emgage is supporting full-scale data-driven GOTV operations in the largest ever Muslim American voter mobilization efforts in history. These operations include voter registration efforts, absentee ballots, phone banking, canvassing, and much more.
Given that ‘Get Out the Vote’ efforts typically involve on-the-grounds community organizing work, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to politically galvanize Muslim American communities in newfound ways to ensure our representation in the 2020 elections. On this end, Emgage has been conducting virtual absentee ballot trainings, candidate forums, voter registration events, town halls with elected officials, our historic Million Muslim Votes Summit, and much more– all in the service of keeping Muslim Americans politically literate and civically engaged as we approach, arguably, the most important election of our lifetime. Despite the quarantine, Muslims have been navigating this new virtual terrain successfully, and are committed to playing our part in the 2020 Presidential Elections– because there is simply too much at stake otherwise.
