    Act-A-Thon Pushes Black Lives Matter Conversation with Representatives

    Two Syracuse University graduates drove a two-day campaign to contact officials in 46 states.


    Ohemaa Dixon and Cayla Dorsey, two Syracuse University students, helped formulate, then drive an “Act-A-Thon” last week, informing hundreds of people across at least 46 states how to contact their elected officials.

    They encouraged action against police brutality as an election year continues and passive social media efforts like the “blackout” fell short of their hopeful effort. The website connects viewers to elected officials that represent them.

    While the George Floyd protests entered their third week and the NBA mulls not returning to focus on the Black Lives Matter movement, we weighed in on the tragic death of Rayshard Brooks, deemed a murder, that further incited anger across the country.
