Tyler Perry's Gathering Voters In Florida


Tyler Perry is putting on a massive campaign to target 25 counties in Florida to get them to the polls.

Perry teamed up with the Black-led nonpartisan group Equal Ground Education Fund on its "Park & Praise" initiative. A series of events where voters can drop off mail-in ballots while hearing from church leaders, musical acts and gospel choirs.

Perry's helping fund the effort to increase Black voter engagement and turnout in the state. The organization says it must adapt to the pandemic, so it's taking proper precautions to "meet the moment of social-distancing."

"Our work to provide robust voter education and ensure that accurate information reaches our communities is the highest priority and is exactly what this partnership with Tyler Perry is going to do." the non-profit's founder, Jasmine Burney-Clark said.
