Revolt Relaunches Diddy’s Vote or Die! Initiative

Approaching this year’s General Election on November 3rdREVOLT has relaunched Sean “Diddy” Combs’ widely popular VOTE or DIE! initiative, to rally the next generation of leaders to exercise their right to vote in this critical election.
.
.
As we face a pivotal turning point in our nation’s history, being politically active means more than selecting a President; it symbolizes your right to take action now. REVOLT recognizes “Vote or Die” is relevant now, more than ever.
.
.
To jumpstart the campaign, REVOLT hosted a State of Emergency: Election Day and Black America town hall, presented by Cash App and moderated by American television host, Eboni K. Williams, to alert citizens about the current happenings in Black America as we prepare to engage in the general election. Guests included Kerry Washington, Cordae, Tamika Mallory, Vic Mensa, Dr. Cornell West, Jeff Johnson, Kimberly Jones, Mysonne, Tezlyn Figaro and more. In addition to the town hall, REVOLT Black News (RBN) provided a recap of the Presidential and Vice Presidential debate and has conducted interviews with politicians, political commentators and notable voices in the Black community.
.
.
“Our research shows that the youth are desperate for a definitive shift in how America works, so it’s critical that we inform and politically activate this generation to take action and define the future,” says Detavio Samuels, Chief Operating Officer, REVOLT TV.
.
.
To reintroduce VOTE or DIE!REVOLT will launch a campaign profiling artists, athletes and cultural leaders wearing the symbolic VOTE or DIE! t-shirt. During the month of October and November, REVOLT will host weeks of VOTE or DIE! content on its platform.
