Board of Advisors

The Collective’s Board of Advisors strategically assists our team in fulfilling our mission to increase Black political representation in the democratic process. Our Board attends one (1) annual in-person meeting and three (3) quarterly conference calls per year. They also each recommend candidates for endorsement by The Collective and provide strategic advice to The Collective Co-founders, staff and consultants.
