Center for Common Ground

A non-partisan voting rights organization led by people of color.

Our Mission

Center for Common Ground was founded to educate and empower under-represented voters in voter suppression states to engage in elections and advocate for their right to vote.

Together, we can build a democracy that prioritizes the voices of ALL people.


Current Campaigns

Wisconsin Supreme Court Race

On April 4th there will be an election to determine the majority on the Wisconsin Supreme Court; this judge will serve for 10 years. The two candidates who won the primary are Judge Janet Protasiewicz and Judge Dan Kelly.

This race has serious implications for abortion policy, voting rights, fair maps and more. That is why we have launched a postcard and phone bank campaign to get-out-the-vote with Black and Hispanic voters in Wisconsin.

Fighting for Voting Rights

The Center for Common Ground has been working to fight voter suppression and empower underserved communities since 2018.

Working with local partners across the country, we run campaigns to increase voter turnout and defend voting rights on the local, state, and national levels. Together with the help of our volunteers, we are educating, mobilizing, and empowering Black and Brown voters in voter suppression states across the South to engage in local issues and make their voices heard at the ballot box.


Democracy Centers

Through our new Democracy Centers campaign, Center for Common Ground provides needed infrastructure, training and digital tools to empower communities during times of accelerated change and challenge. Citizens need a place to gather, learn about national, state and local policy/politics so they can make educated decisions about their leaders and how to make change on every level.
