IMPACT’s Founder Shares About Her Grassroots Voting Rights Work

Frankie Blackburn shares how she's taken the network-building skills she honed in Silver Spring and applied them to grassroots organizing in rural North Carolina.  
In 1999, Frankie Blackburn, along with a small group of committed residents, founded IMPACT Silver Spring. Frankie left IMPACT in 2010 and became a partner in Trusted Space Partners, an organization supporting collaborative community change initiatives.

Today, Frankie lives with her partner Bill Traynor in Saxapahaw, North Carolina where she is continuing to do what she does so well—connecting people and pushing for positive social change.  As we prepare for our upcoming screening of the documentary Suppressed and Sabotaged: The Fight to Vote (register HERE for the event), we asked Frankie to share with us about her grassroots work to expand voting rights. We hope you’ll watch (it's about 5 minutes long) and be inspired!
