Within voting lies the power to make change.
In partnership with local, on-the-ground organizations, we build advocacy and voting campaigns that educate and mobilize Black voters across the South. Together, we provide voters with the tools they need to learn how national, state and local policy and politics impact their communities, where their elected officials stand, and what can be done to create needed change.
Get involved with our campaigns to educate and mobilize Black voters in anti-voter states across the South!
“I phone bank because it reflects my values. I love talking to people in places like Georgia, working against voter suppression and white supremacy. It makes me feel useful and connected.”
"I am truly grateful to the Center for Common Ground for providing a consistent, friendly to its volunteers, and easy to use framework and opportunity for being engaged in societal matters crucial to our country."
"I love the camaraderie of calling voters alongside other community-minded people, and the experience of making a difference in getting out the vote and connecting voters to their elected officials."
Traditional candidate campaigns tend to appear weeks prior to an election and leave shortly thereafter, focusing on urban/suburban voters but leaving rural communities of color behind. Our various campaigns work to fill those gaps and deepen democracy and electoral justice for all.
We partner with local on-the-ground organizations in our target states of Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. We also build technology tools to help empower local communities and organizing networks long after elections are over.
Democracy Centers provide permanent, peer-to-peer voter services, education, dialogue and opportunity for participation within the political process at the local, state and federal levels, in partnership with underserved communities.
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.
