Voter Engagement

Go back to our work.

Structural change will only be possible with an electorate that looks more like the country, so Community Change Action is building a large-scale political operation of, by, and for communities of color. Black, brown, and immigrant communities must be full participants in our democracy, including as voters. We can change our politics by expanding the electorate and mobilizing voters ignored by traditional campaign targeting.

 
In 2018, Community Change Action engaged more than 2.5 million voters of color, women, and young people by knocking on doors, making phone calls, and sending texts, and we engaged millions more through our digital program.
Our electoral approach relies on our deep roots in the communities where we work. We are helping our grassroots partners build their civic engagement muscles for many years to come. Our partners are often the advocacy organizations affiliated with Community Change’s partners on issue campaigns and longer term power-building. The training, technical assistance, and support that we provide each election cycle remain in the community and sustain long-term social change.

Community Change Voters is a non-candidate Political Action Committee focused on engaging, mobilizing, and turning out low-income voters, particularly low-income voters of color.

Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM Action), a project of Community Change Action, is a united national effort bringing together individuals and grassroots organizations with the mission to build widespread support for workable, humane, comprehensive immigration reform. With the FIRM Action network of immigrant organizations across the country, we engaged millions of immigrant and pro-immigrant voters to make their voices heard at the ballot box in key U.S. House races as well as the U.S. Senate race in Tennessee. Learn more about their strategy at vision.firmaction.org.

In 2018 and 2020, Community Change Action, Color of Change PAC, Planned Parenthood Votes, and Service Employees International Union (SEIU), along with our state-level affiliates and partners, have run a groundbreaking political operation, Win Justice. Our coalition works to build lasting power and win key elections in battleground states. In 2020, we will work in Florida, Nevada, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

In 2018, we engaged 2.5 million voters in 2018 through statewide mobilization and turnout programs in Florida, Michigan, and Nevada.

A Bold, Inclusive, and Caring agenda

 
The COVID-19 public health crisis has made it impossible to ignore the deep, structural flaws in the rules that govern our economy. Even as the pandemic has made our interdependence more apparent, we are forced to confront the stark differences in our abilities to weather the economic crisis caused by the pandemic. Although all of us participate in the creation of wealth in our society, a wealthy few capture most of these riches. The rest of us live one illness, one recession, or one piece of bad luck from economic ruin.
