ATLANTA, March 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's largest African American-led mentoring organization, 100 Black Men of America, Inc., announced today the launch of its "Real Men Vote" campaign and 14-city tour. The tour kicks off in Cleveland, Ohio on April 1st at Premier Barbershop, and this effort is focused on delivering critical voter education and engagement ahead of the 2024 Presidential election.

Milton H. Jones Jr, Chairman of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. said "We are an organization with more than 4,000 members, all of whom are registered to vote in the upcoming national and local elections. Further, all of these men are committed to helping men and women in their communities register to vote, learn about the election issues, and see the importance of casting their ballots at every opportunity to vote."

In addition to a critical Presidential election, there are 435 seats in the House of Representatives and over 30 Senate seats up for election this year. Ahead one of the nation's most consequential election seasons, the "Real Men Vote" campaign is dedicated to combating an onslaught of misinformation and voting dissuasion campaigns. The goal of the tour is to equip Black men across the country with accurate information about issues and policies at the federal, state and local levels.

Dr. Wes Bellamy, Chair of the Public Policy Committee of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. Board added " Black men and their potential to shape future elections have increasingly gained national attention. However, with that attention has come an influx of misinformation tactics directly targeting them.
