A racial justice group's political action committee plans to hold leadership training in Detroit focused on black voters.

The Color of Change PAC says organizers will meet with about 200 black activists and organizers from across Michigan. Participants in the training and other volunteers also plan to visit about 5,000 homes on Sunday in Detroit.

The training is part of its #VotingWhileBlack campaign which is intended to mobilize black voters to cast ballots this year in critical local, state and national elections.

A block party also is planned from 1-4 p.m. Sunday. Color of Change PAC staff will discuss their efforts in raising awareness around the 2018 midterm elections.
