All families should have an equal voice in shaping policies that affect their communities.
We lift up ways for poor and low-income families to make their voices heard:
- Voting rights and access
- Voter registration and Get Out The Vote (GOTV) campaigns
- Community organizing
- Collective action and advocacy
- Movement building
We fight against policies and practices that stifle or take away their voices:
- Voter suppression
- Criminalization of poverty, migrants, and people of color
- Mass incarceration
- Restricted voting rights for reentering community members
With the power of equal voice, poor and low-income families can lead movements and bring about lasting change to improve the well-being of all families.
