Civic Engagement & Advocacy
The goal of our advocacy programs is to increase the capacity of human service nonprofits and the communities they serve to enhance civic engagement and advance inclusive and community-centered policy. Our programs are grounded in principles of equity and addressing imbalances of power in our field and political environment. These efforts are always nonpartisan, and we hold nonpartisanship as a core value of our advocacy work.
As we navigate the effects of a global pandemic, economic downfall, and racial justice uprising, we are presented with the opportunity to be seen and heard in new ways and contribute towards meaningful and sustainable systems change.
We believe that when given the ongoing support and necessary resources to participate in advocacy and voter engagement efforts, human service nonprofits and the communities they serve are able to build power and influence with decision makers and contribute to a more equitable and just society for all.
