The organizers: Quentin James and Stefanie Brown James, former key strategists and organizers for the Sierra Club, NAACP, and Obama for America campaigns.
The mission: To fix the underrepresentation of African Americans in elected office by working to find, support, fund and elect African-American candidates.
The story: Collective PAC was created in 2016, when two politicos set out to close the gap in representation for African American constituents. In less than two years, they’ve helped 23 candidates win at the local, state and federal level, raised nearly $1,000,000, and launched The Black Campaign School and The Black Political Power Summit.
The latest: With the primary season underway, Collective PAC has swung into action, with 38 endorsed candidates on the ballot this year at statewide, federal, and municipal levels. They’re also focused on building the power of black voters and donors through training and support programs.
