Making moves. A day before his tour kicks off, Chance tweets out:

“Proud to announce I’ll be teaming with @NAACP for #magnificentcoloringworldtour to bring Voters Registration to the show #staywokeandvote”

In addition to registering voters, NAACP members will also provide civic engagement resources and NAACP membership information to concertgoers. The registration drives will begin Sept. 24 during the tour’s Chicago stop, and will continue through Oct. 21.

Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP, said in a press release:

“Chance the Rapper is an artist whose music praises and lifts up our common humanity, and whose call for action speaks to the yearning of this moment. This year, more than it has in a generation, we must use the power of our voices and our votes and exercise our sacred right to vote.”

Stephen Green, director of the NAACP Youth & College Division, also had some kid words about Chance in his press release:

“Chance the Rapper is a unique artist whose independence is a reflection of our millennial generation, who for the first time match the number of baby Boomers in the electorate. We’re pleased to join with Chance and the millions of young people who this year to become passionate activists and agents of change this year.”
