On Friday August 7th, 2020, Concerned African Women, Inc. hosted its First Friday: Get Out to VOTE event! First Friday was cultivated from the idea of bringing individuals of the community together to talk about pressing issues such as: education, equity, leadership and empowerment. 

While our country is in the midst of a global pandemic, ongoing racial injustice and mourning the loss of Congressman John Lewis, we are compelled to highlight the importance of getting out to vote.
