People are more powerful than they realize. Through our programs we empower community members to learn about their communities and the policies that impact them and how to take action.

Be Counted

Black Votes Matter MN


As part of the Census Co-Creation Table, we designed and developed Our Census MN -a mobilization strategy to engage historically undercounted communities across Minnesota. The 14 member multicultural coalition will work together to design the implementation strategy in concert with several cities and counties across Minnesota. Stand up and be counted! 

Black Votes Matter MN (BVM) is a non-partisan voter engagement initiative designed to increase voter turnout in underrepresented communities. We believe the next leaders and solutions will come from our communities. We’re creating pathways to promote leadership and advance the issues that matter to you!

Drawing the Line

In 2018, we launched Power In Participation- our high school curriculum-teaching scholars the basics of government, civic engagement, movement-building and issue advancement. Join us as we work to bring this empowering program to a school near you!
