CivicTN’s mission is to strengthen the collective impact of, and collaboration between, nonprofit 501(c)(3) community and advocacy organizations that empower the rising American electorate in our state. In Tennessee, the “Rising Electorate” is Black, Latinx, New Americans, low-income families, single women and young voters.
Why collaboration on this work is important?
We are stronger when we work together. When we leverage the relationships 501(c)(3) organizations have built over the years in communities who trust them, we can begin to see meaningful progress. In fact, studies show that people are much more likely to vote when asked to do so by a trusted nonprofit. When nonprofits encourage the people they serve to vote, they’re building political power to solve the key issues they care about.
That’s where CivicTN comes in. CivicTN is setup to develop data-driven strategies and provide best-practice trainings that increase member efficiency for better get-out-the-vote operations as well as strengthen their community organizing programs. Our team will work to provide nonprofit community members with current best practices, data analysis, fundraising and grassroots organizing as its relate to civic engagement. Additionally, these efforts build a stronger pipeline of talent to lead civic engagement and nonprofit work that affects meaningful and positive change.
