MEET THE FOUNDER
Black Male Voter Project was founded by W. Mondale Robinson, who currently serves as our Principal. He is the National Political Director for Democracy for America, Political Contributor for The Village Celebration where he has political and cultural columns and is a regular on their syndicated radio show. Mondale is also a Political Consultant.
Born one of 13 in rural North Carolina, W. Mondale grew up with a front-row seat to obstacles that kept and keeps Black people from voting. With this knowledge and his veteran campaign experience, he created a voter engagement program that would increase Black people’s participation in the electoral process (BMEP Additory Approach©). The program was designed with a special focus on Black men, who are so often labeled as low information and sporadic voters. The program has been a success in the 13 states where it has been implemented (VA, NC, SC, GA, MS, FL, AL, TX, AR, OH, IN, NY, and NJ).
Mondale has been a lifelong advocate for the expansion of democracy and the protection of voting rights. He has worked on more than 125 campaigns–across all levels of government–in the United States, and leading roles internationally.
