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.

Fighting for Voting Rights

Working with local partners across the country, we are running multiple campaigns to defend voting rights on the local, state and national levels. Together with the help of our volunteers, we are educating and mobilizing Black and Brown voters in voter suppression states to take action and protect their right to vote.

Join our effort by volunteering to make calls, write postcards and send text messages that encourage Black voters to make their voices heard at the polls! Learn more about our campaigns here.


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.
