VOTE (Voter Organizing Training and Empowerment)

VOTE (Voter Organizing Training and Empowerment) is the centerpiece of our Building Political Power program. Through VOTE we provide training, financial support and technical assistance to build the capacity of community-based organizations.

VOTE cover

Our VOTE project fulfilled its goal to build political power in underserved and marginalized communities from 2003 to 2013, 

We started by forming strategic, multi-year relationships with organizations based in communities that have traditionally been shut out of power – youth, people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ, low-income, the formerly incarcerated.

We provided those organizations with the building blocks they need to engage their constituencies in the democratic process: leadership development, free access to cutting-edge technology, in-depth technical assistance.

We brought grassroots leaders together across six states and multiple constituencies to educate each other on the issues, offer peer support, and form authentic cross-issue coalitions.

The VOTE Project worked at the intersection of the constituencies most affected by the current political environment and the policy reforms needed to help the U.S. achieve its promise of opportunity for all.
