The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a coalition of 34,000 churches, announced its support for Pastor Jamal Bryant’s Empowerment Temple’s movement to register 1 million voters on Easter Sunday.
Reverend Anthony Evans, President of NBCI says: “Pastor Bryant should be commended on this great effort and we intend to work with him until this goal is reached. I have authorized all of our churches to follow the leadership of Pastor Bryant on this issue. We keep being reminded that voting is not just essential, it is the essence of a democracy. One vote can count as a million votes when it is cast with power. All Black churches, all 150,000 of us, 34,000 of which are represented by NBCI, should register at least 20 members of their congregations who remain unregistered to vote.”
