Make the Road PA


Make the Road PA builds power for justice in Latinx communities, communities of color and working class communities, with organizing centers located in Allentown, Reading and Philadelphia.

According to 2020 census data, the Latino population in Pennsylvania grew by 45 percent, and Berks County is now 25% Latinx. Engaging these communities in local and statewide elections is absolutely essential.

In the 2022 midterm elections, Make the Road PA’s organizers and volunteers completed over 2.2 million calls and sent more than 1.5 million text messages in 66 out of the state’s 67 counties. They generated 150,000 successful conversations with 92,000 individuals, of whom 80 percent voted (compared with 58 percent of those not contacted). For the general election in 2024, the organization is looking to hire 14-15 new full time employees, and 200-300 paid canvassers.

Ohio Organizing Collaborative


Ohio Organizing Collaborative (OOC) is a grassroots organization that brings together base-building community organizing groups, student associations, faith organizations, labor unions, and policy institutes throughout Ohio. It is their mission to organize everyday Ohioans, and build transformative power for racial, social, and economic justice.

At the local and state levels, the OOC’s priorities are centered around economic justice, criminal
justice, and structural democracy reform through the expansion of voting rights. The OOC uses grassroots organizing and powerbuilding, large-scale civic engagement, and strategic communications to affect change.

Since 2012 the OOC has registered over 420,000 Ohioans to vote for the first time. In the runup to the 2022 midterms, they registered more than 45,700 Black and young voters in Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati – more than any other organization in the state.

Voces de la Frontera Action, Wisconsin


Voces de la Frontera is a membership-based community organization led by low-wage workers, immigrants and youth whose mission is to protect and expand civil rights and workers’ rights through leadership development, community organizing and empowerment.

Voces has been helping register young people and Latinx people to vote since the 2004 election, alongside their sister organization Voces de la Frontera Action. In 2018, Voces de la Frontera Action has launched a historic effort called Voceros por el Voto to mobilize 48,000 Latinx voters and elect pro-immigrant, pro-worker candidates up and down the ballot.

Missouri Wins Investor Network


Missouri Wins Investor Network (MOWIN) is an organized community of individual and institutional donors working behind the scenes to assess the big picture needs, share intel, and pool resources toward the big investments that accelerate change in Missouri. MOWINs invests in organizations and leaders that drive a research-driven, multi-year strategy to transform Missouri politics. MOWIN invests in infrastructure to build a multiracial governing majority that will endure election after election. Through these investments, MOWIN hopes to transform the conditions candidates face come election time and how elected leaders can govern.

In the first four years of its existence, MOWIN has registered over 88,000 voters, helped flip 6 state House seats, and directed contributions to 17 grassroots organizations.

MOWIN invests in the organizations that provide critical and core capacities to grassroots organizations and campaigns. These organizations are the building blocks for state political power that transcends any one election or candidate, but impacts all those elections and candidates. MOWIN’s commitment to organizations is consistent, not boom and bust like political donations that come at election time. And that commitment is long term, which allows organizations to tackle long term opportunities and challenges, not just today’s candidate.

Somos Votantes


Somos Votantes is a Latino-led and Latino-focused organization aimed at engaging Latino voters to increase voter participation and improve Democratic performance in Latino communities in order to win elections. Somos Votantes Education Fund (SVEF) is a non-partisan civic engagement organization dedicated to empowering and educating Latino communities with the knowledge, tools, and opportunities they need to participate in our democracy and create meaningful change in their communities. SVEF also partners with Somos Votantes, a 501(c)(4) organization with the purpose of promoting the social welfare of Latino communities.

In 2022, SVEF and Somos Votantes engaged key segments of our Latino communities, including launching and growing the following nonpartisan programs: a youth outreach program (Somos Lideres), a Latina-specific engagement program (Somos Poderosas), and a Latino small business outreach program. We also conducted extensive research to ensure that our communication was framed correctly and would be effective in achieving its goals. Across several states – including Michigan, Nevada and Arizona — we ran a nonpartisan GOTV program, investing in paid media programs in order to educate Latinos on the process of voting, both in person and by mail.

Michigan United


The vision of the Michigan People’s Campaign is to ignite the power of our communities and shift the balance of power; cultivate the leadership of those directly affected by injustice; and build popular institutions for the future. It is a multi-racial organization, which works year-round to make sure that communities that have been left out of the political process, especially working-class communities and communities of color, are fully engaged and have good reasons to vote. The organization also trains the next generation of candidates and campaign managers from communities that are most impacted by injustice.

Michigan United was formed in 2013 through the merger of the two longtime community organizing groups, Michigan Organizing Project (MOP) and the Alliance for Immigrant Rights (AIR). MOP was a faith-centered community organizing project based in West Michigan, with membership in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, and smaller towns in the area. AIR was a statewide coalition of 100 labor, faith, social service, civil rights and business groups working to stand up for the civil rights of immigrant workers, families and students. AIR also conducted extensive community organizing of low-income Latino and Arab American families in Metro-Detroit. This long history of organizing and deep community ties has helped Michigan United become one of the most impactful organizations in the state today.

Every year, volunteers and fellows canvass tens of thousands of residents who are the least likely to vote. They work to educate and organize community members about the important issues in play in the election, encourage citizens to vote and register new voters. Their voter program is focused on expanding the electorate and bringing new voices into the debate. Michigan United regularly runs the largest Spanish-speaking get-out-the-vote program in the state.

Michigan United also has a legal services department that provides immigration legal services including citizenship classes, English language classes, and renewals and petitions for documentation.

Carolina Federation


The Carolina Federation works to bring people together across differences to build a new political majority in North Carolina – one rooted in a culture of belonging and strong enough to win elections and wield governing power in our state. They seek to combine the best of Southern Freedom traditions: deep base-building in our counties and neighborhoods, transformative leadership development, power-building issue campaigns, and large-scale voter organizing. They fight for a democracy for all, an economy for all, and for a culture of belonging for all North Carolinians.

Their core programs have operated in four areas: 1) base building and chapter member work, 2) training and leadership development, 3) movement politics organizing alongside candidates, and 4) large scale field organizing to reach voters.
