On today's show, we are joined by Dr. Camilla Westenberg on behalf of the NAACP discussing midterm elections, their importance, and what outcomes they shape. She shares a story of the importance of voting according to her elders, and also discusses what is at stake for this midterm election.
In the second half of the show, we discuss voter suppression initiatives across the country. We discuss ways to identify and combat these actions that seek to weaken the voting power of the historically disenfranchised. Consideration for today's show was provided by Major Threads menswear www.MajorThreads.com, and Hip Hop Weekly Magazine www.hiphopweekly.com

About Civic Cipher
Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.
