milw_river_viewDNC Chair Harrison Focuses on Black Voter Outreach


MILWAUKEE - This weekend, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison traveled to Milwaukee for the Wisconsin Democratic Party Convention, where he headlined several events engaging with Black, Latino, faith, and LGBTQ+ community members – core constituencies central to the winning Biden-Harris coalition.

Chair Harrison joined several popular Wisconsin Black radio shows, including “The Truth with Sherwin Hughes” on 101.7 The Truth, and “The Earl Ingram Show.” President Biden and the Democrats aren’t taking a single vote for granted, and their continued presence in Wisconsin this cycle is a sign of their ongoing commitment to voters in the crucial battleground.

Milwaukee Courier: Wisconsin Democrats Engage Black Voters in Milwaukee with Roundtable Discussion

“Harrison shared examples of the differences between the two candidates.

“‘The stark difference is one person is actually speaking to the future of this country and who we can become. The other wants to live in the past.’

“‘Under the Trump administration most of all of the PPP loans went to big banks; it did not go to the community banks,’ Harrison said. ‘Small Black barber shops, beauticians, grocery stores needed loans but didn’t get them until Joe Biden got in the White House and Democrats had control of the House and Senate. From the PPP loans under Trump, there were 1700 loans for small Black businesses $592 million, under Biden 4781 loans, $1.4 billion. Also, child poverty was cut in half the first year of the Biden Administration because of the tax child credit.’”

“DNC Chair Jaime Harrison today urged Democrats to vote in the 2024 election, describing the election as a struggle of hope against fear. 

“‘They want to dictate every part of our lives so that we fall in line and we don’t question their motives,’ Harrison said of Republicans. ‘Their values are not American values, because American values always boil down to one word: hope. They are the party of fear. We are the party of hope.’”
