Chance the Rapper to Bring Voter Registration with NAACP to Magnificent Coloring World Tour
You can never say that Chance didn't do anything for the youth
Chance the Rapper is ultimately a rapper for the people. He bought back almost 2,000 tickets from scalpers for his Magnificent Coloring Day festival in Chicago. He helped give the homeless people in Chicago warm jackets to weather the winter. And now he’s joining forces with the NAACP to help register voters while on tour.
The NAACP released the following statement as to how it’ll all work out:
“Teams of volunteers with the civil rights organization’s Youth & College Division will be on hand at the ground-breaking artist’s performances across the country as part of the Magnificent Coloring World Tour. Volunteer NAACP youth members will be available to help first-time voters register and vote in the Nov. 8th election.”
The move by the NAACP is part of their #staywokeandvote campaign. Chance plans on having the NAACP crew set up at select dates on his tour, which starts today in San Diego. You’ll find their table which will provide civic engagement resources and NAACP membership information at Chicago, Fairfax, VA, Raleigh, NC, Atlanta, GA, Miami and Tallahassee, FL, New Orleans, LA, Houston and Dallas, TX and San Francisco, CA.
