Sprite is encouraging fans to use their voices at the polls on Nov. 3 and beyond through the “Create Your Future” voter education program.

“Create Your Future” will give young creators a platform to share why they vote and use the brand’s resources, reach and partners in the hip-hop community to amplify these expressions. Six emerging artists – fashion designers BLUBOY and Dorothy Lawes, photographer Yvette Glasco, artists Sage Guillory and Foremost and illustrator Neka King – will create pieces about why voting is important to them. The non-partisan initiative also will inform and educate Sprite fans on voting rights, the electoral process and why voting is important.

This summer, Sprite launched “The Give Back,” a program to support the Black community in the fight against racial injustice and the COVID-19 pandemic. The brand also announced a partnership with Black Lives Matter Global Network and a commitment to donate $500,000.00 to the organization. “Create Your Future” is the next iteration of these efforts, all of which use the “Thirst for Yours” platform blueprint to elevate Black and multicultural voices.

Additional partners for the “Create Your Future” program include global creative incubator and youth empowerment foundation, VFILES, along with notable figures and celebrities including Actress & Change Agent Yara Shahidi, GRAMMY Award-Winning Artist 2 Chainz and GRAMMY Nominated Artist Rapsody.

Fans are encouraged to share their reasons for voting on Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube by tagging @Sprite with #CreateYourFuture and visit Sprite.com for more information on the creators and their custom art pieces inspired by each of the creators’ personal reasons to vote. A fully integrated marketing campaign (IMC) will support the “Create Your Future” initiative with new TV creative premiering during the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards on October 27, as well as online, social, and out-of-home, mobile and streaming audio advertising.
