Detroit, MI — BlackPAC and LCV Victory Fund today announced a new joint $900,000 direct mail campaign to mobilize Black voters and re-elect Senator Gary Peters. The first of two mail pieces contrasting Sen. Peters and his opponent John James’ records on health care, clean water, economic opportunities, and standing up to white supremacy, dropped in mailboxes Friday across Michigan.
This is LCV Victory Fund and Black PAC’s second partnership in Michigan this cycle. LCV Victory Fund also supported BlackPAC’s pro-Peters radio ad over the summer, “Gary Gets It Done,” which focuses on Sen. Peters’ record standing up to environmental injustice.
“Black voters understand that course correcting our democracy is going to take a new Senate committed to progressive policies that address the intertwined crises of climate change, an economic recession, the high price of health care and systemic racism,” said Adrianne Shropshire, executive director of BlackPAC. “While Senate Republicans have stood by and enabled the Trump administration’s incompetence and corruption over the last four years, Gary Peters has remained steadfast in his fight for every community in Michigan. Together, BlackPAC and LCV Victory Fund are committed to making sure that Trump and his would-be allies in the Senate have no place in Washington next year.”
“Black communities are being disproportionately harmed by Trump and Republicans’ approach to the pandemic, racial and economic injustice, and the climate crisis,” said Megan Jacobs, LCV Victory Fund National Campaigns Director. “While John James stands with Trump ‘2,000 percent,’ Senator Peters is approaching the converging crises in our country with the empathy and seriousness they deserve. Black voters will make the difference for Senator Peters. We are thrilled to partner with BlackPAC again in these critical final weeks.”
