COALITION

Learn more about the members of our coalition:

VOTERIDERS

VoteRiders’ mission is to ensure that no eligible voter is prevented from casting a ballot that counts due to voter ID laws, either directly from lacking acceptable ID or indirectly because of voter confusion. VoteRiders educates voters and assists citizens to secure their voter ID. We inspire and support organizations, volunteers, and communities to sustain such voter ID education and assistance efforts.

Registered voters in Texas need to confirm their identity with photo ID when they vote in person.

If you don’t have an acceptable photo ID, there may be other ways you can confirm your identity.

RIDESHARE2VOTE AWARE

RIDESHARE2VOTE AWARE increases voter turnout and combats voter suppression. We turn out low-propensity voters through repeat contact and a safe round-trip ride to the polls both during early voting and on Election Day.

COMMON CAUSE EDUCATION FUND

STRENGHTENING DEMOCRACY
Common Cause Education Fund is a 501(c)3 affiliate organization of Common Cause that supports national, state, and local efforts to strengthen our democracy.

Common Cause Education Fund harnesses the power of philanthropy to create a truly representative democracy that answers to the people, not the powerful. Using research, public education, citizen engagement, policy development and litigation, we aim to make the promises of the Constitution real for every American.

AACT NOW

AACT began in order to forge a single organization that will improve voter registration and voter turnout in the community.

For over 50 years, South Texas has been well below the state average for voter turnout. Reaching the community in a meaningful way has proven to be a difficult task to many in state and out of state organizations. As a result, a group of concerned leaders from the South Texas community came together to form the Advocacy Alliance Center of Texas (AACT).

NEXTGEN TEXAS

NextGen is the nation’s largest youth voting organization using innovative digital and field strategies to turn out young voters in key states. We’re empowering the largest and most diverse generation in American history through voter education, registration and mobilization. At NextGen we share lessons learned with the broader progressive community to build a stronger, more nimble and effective democracy.

By working with young people across the country, we’re shaping a government that respects us, reflects us, and represents us — not just for an election cycle but for generations to come.

FUTURO RGV

Citizenry group dedicated to the Quality of Life of the Rio Grande Valley.

TEXAS RISING

A project of the Texas Freedom Network, Texas Rising is building the power of young people in our communities and at the ballot box. Their program organizes and builds power with young people of color in a multi-issue, intersectional social justice framework.

BLACK VOTERS MATTER CAPACITY BUILDING INSTITUTE

The goal of Black Voters Matter is to increase power in marginalized communities. We agree with the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, “Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”

CP FUTURE

Next Gen Led | Historically Inspired | Community Centered
CP FUTURE is a community created by new, young and driven leaders for fellow Gen Zs who want to engage civically and expand access to democracy. More than that, they want to provide opportunities, resources, and programs to build leadership skills mobilize them for sustainable reforms.

Democracy is something we do, not something that is. Change demands action.

We are the future of America and ready to get to work!

THE GOOD DEED CORPS

The Good Deed Corps believes that a nation is made stronger when more of its citizens participate in the civic process.
We encourage and inspire citizens in overlooked and under-resourced communities to register to vote, vote, and encourage their friends and family to do the same.

To accomplish this, we bring food, music and passionate, knowledgeable volunteers to meet would-be voters where they are and engage them in relaxed nonpartisan conversations.

Our pilot programs in Atlanta, Savannah, and rural Southeast Georgia helped turn out a record number of voters in the U.S. Senate runoffs in Georgia this year.

We plan to bring the same energy, dedication and resources to Texas (a state 47th in the nation in voter participation) to help set new records for voter turnout in 2022 and 2024.
