Rock the Vote
Since 1990, Rock the Vote has been registering and turning out millions of new voters.
Rock the Vote is the largest nonprofit and nonpartisan organization in the United States driving the youth vote to the polls.
For more than 25 years, Rock the Vote has revolutionized the way we use pop culture, music, art and technology to inspire political activity. The organization has pioneered ways to make voting easier for young adults by simplifying and demystifying voter registration and elections.
We stage voter registration drives at concerts and run programs that translate the power of music into real action. By reaching young people and music fans where they already are – at concerts and online – we make civic participation easy and fun. To get a real sense of who we are, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
League of Women Voters
The League of Women Voters is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives. We operate at national, state and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues, in all 50 states as well in DC, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.
Formed from the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the centerpiece of the League’s efforts remain to expand participation and give a voice to all Americans. We do this at all three levels of government, engaging in both broad educational efforts as well as advocacy. Our issues are grounded in our respected history of making democracy work for all citizens.
The name Feminist Majority Foundation is a consciousness-raiser, inspired by a Newsweek/Gallup public opinion poll that showed the majority of women (56%) in the United States self-identified as feminists. Most polls since then reveal that this majority continues with over two-thirds of young women self-identifying as feminists. Most men, especially young men, view themselves as supporters of the women’s rights movement.
The Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF), which was founded in 1987, is a cutting edge organization dedicated to women’s equality, reproductive health, and non-violence. In all spheres, FMF utilizes research and action to empower women economically, socially, and politically. Our organization believes that feminists – both women and men, girls and boys – are the majority, but this majority must be empowered.
From understanding the voter registration form to role playing, we fully equip people to engage unregistered voters in the democratic process.
The Indivisible Project is a registered 501c(4) nonprofit.A few days after the election of Donald Trump, two former congressional staffers talked about what every progressive in America was talking about: what do we do now? We saw energy building to resist, but it wasn’t directed
Sign a petition? Call Congress? How does this actually translate into taking down Donald Trump’s agenda?
It hit us. We’d seen a model for success for how local activism can affect real change in Congress. If the Tea Party was able to take on a historically popular President Obama with a Democratic supermajority to slow and sometimes defeat his federal agenda, we can surely take on Donald Trump and the members of Congress who would do his bidding.
So we wrote a Google Doc and put it online December 14. The roadmap we laid out wasn’t rocket science:
- Tea Party-inspired strategy: locally focused, defensive congressional advocacy to protect our values (without the vitriol).
- How your member of Congress thinks: reelection, reelection, reelection — and how to use that to save democracy.
- Identify or organize your local group: building constituent power through organically-formed, locally-led groups.
- Local advocacy tactics that actually work: focusing on your three members of Congress through town halls, other public events, district office visits, and mass calls.
Control of the House in 2018 will be decided by a handful of Swing Districts, places where the last election was decided by a thin margin. Find your closest Swing District and join its team to learn about actionable opportunities to support progressives—and defeat Republicans—in that district, no matter where you live. We can stop Trump and the GOP agenda by working together NOW.
The Sister District Project harnesses the energy of volunteers in deeply blue (or red) places and channels it to where it can make a real impact. We are a network of local teams that support strategically important, winnable races across the country.
In 2017, our focus is down-ballot on critical state races where Democratic control hangs in the balance.
Together, we will ensure that all Americans have equal representation and our government works for all people, not just the minority in power.
