About “A Call to Colors”

The focus of “A Call to Colors” is to achieve 100% voter registration by engaging college campus student organizations and the “Divine 9” – nine historically Black Greek letter organizations that make up the National Pan-Hellenic Council. The campaign will also include the NC NAACP and black leadership from around the state of North Carolina.  The initiative includes twice yearly “Call to Colors” civic engagement rallies on HBCU campuses, at non-traditional campuses and in many different iterations. With the NAACP’s participation, the HBCU/Divine 9 and other black leadership, coalitions can be recreated virtually everywhere. Experienced leaders will define the civic engagement concept for undergraduates and guide its implementation. Mobilizing our students in cyberspace creates untold leverage in civic engagement and community organizing.
