WHAT
WE DO

We build upon the relationships nonprofits already have with the people they serve. This enables us, in partnership with the community, to galvanize citizens in low-income or hard to reach communities to increase equitable civic engagement, democracy building, voter participation and efforts for fair elections.

PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.

“Civic engagement must be understood as a constant, sustained practice that outlives election cycles and stretches beyond voting or formal channels for citizen input.”
