Blurb: Shennell McCloud’s new community organization, Project Ready NJ, hosted a celebration of its successful first initiative: to get 1,000 Newarkers, mostly women of color, to register to vote by mail. Why? Because Shennell and her enthusiastic team believe voting is a critical issue of access and equity, as well as a key part of its mission of serving the families of Newark. Never ones to waste an opportunity, staffers were on hand to help attendees register to vote by mail right at the event.
