Policy has power. At schools, grocery stores, or churches, we can’t allow our loved ones to continue to die as White-supremacy fueled gun violence runs rampant. Part of how we change this senseless culture of violence is by changing our policies.
With California’s June 7th elections less than a week and a half away, it’s time to vote for health, safety, and prosperity for all of us. We are lifting up our grant partners who do vital work to increase voter education and engagement during election years and all the time.
Whether it’s hyper local campaigns or statewide organizing efforts to get out the vote, our grant partners build political power in Black, Indigenous, Asian, and Latinx communities across the state increasing voter education and civic participation.
Check out their bold, beautiful work:
- Black Organizing Project
- Black Women for Wellness
- Dolores Huerta Foundation
- Fresno Barrios Unidos
- Hmong Innovating Politics
- La Defensa
- Mid-City CAN
- RYSE Youth Center
- Starting Over, Inc.
Flawed as it may be, part of the power of government is that it supports us to do things together that we can’t do on our own. Our voice is our vote. We are awed and inspired by our grant partners who build the community power and political muscle to change the course of California’s intersectional feminist future at the ballot box and in the neighborhood.
Let’s cast our votes for racial, economic, and gender justice!
