Washington, DC: On Wednesday, March 25, Michelle Obama’s nonpartisan voting initiative, When We All Vote, is partnering with DJ D-Nice, founder of the viral Homeschool at Club Quarantine dance parties, to throw a virtual #CouchParty to help register eligible voters. As the country’s reality continues to change in the wake of the coronavirus’ ongoing impact on individuals and communities, When We All Vote is committed to exploring innovative and safe ways to reach voters where they are — at home.
DJ D-Nice is an entertainer, entrepreneur and activist, and his Homeschool at Club Quarantine social distancing dance parties have drawn more than 200,000 people on Instagram Live, including When We All Vote Co-Chair Michelle Obama. More than 3,000 #CouchParty volunteers have already signed up to help text eligible voters through Outvote, a web and mobile organizing platform used to reach unregistered voters. While our volunteers are texting on their laptops, iPads or smartphones, DJ D-Nice will spin a special set in their honor to inspire and motivate them in our effort to text 50,000 eligible voters by 9 pm ET.
