Citified: Can Black Voters Matter “Democratize” Philly Politics?

"Black Voters Matter is the first group in the country to launch a nomination campaign on Crowdpac; political director Liz Jaff says it will soon allow other organizations to try out the feature.

Black Voters Matter told Citified which of the nominees racked up the most endorsements and contributions. These are the people who will receive help from the organization, and they haven't been announced until now. They are Democrats Omar Woodard, 32, an adjunct professor who is eyeing a run for the State Senate in the 3rd District; Chris Rabb, 45, another adjunct professor who is running for the State House in the 200th District; Edwin Santana, 37, an educator who is campaigning for the State House in the 192nd District; and Movita Johnson-Harrell, 49, an executive director at an assisted living facility who is running for the State House in the 190th District."
