Five New Members
Posted by Bridge Alliance on May 10, 2018 at 5:44 PM
Over the last month and a half, the Bridge Alliance has welcomed five new organizations dedicated to revitalizing our democracy. Five! Our coalition is strong and growing fast.
Without further ado, please welcome the newest members of the Bridge Alliance:
→ National Institute on Money in State Politics promotes an accountable democracy by compiling comprehensive campaign-donor, lobbyist, and other information from government disclosure agencies and making it freely available at FollowTheMoney.org.
→ Inspire U.S. transforms young leaders’ inspiration into action that improves our communities and strengthens our democracy. They support high schools in planning and conducting student peer-to-peer voter registration activities and guide them to engage them with elected officials.
→ Campus Vote Project works with universities, community colleges, faculty, students and election officials to reduce barriers to student voting. Their goal is to help campuses institutionalize reforms that empower students with the information they need to register and vote.
→ Junior State of America Foundation makes it their mission to strengthen American democracy by educating and preparing high school students for life-long involvement and responsible leadership in a democratic society.
→ R Street Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, public policy research organization. Their mission is to engage in policy research and outreach to promote free markets and limited, effective government.
We also wanted to let you know that the National Conference on Citizenship will be hosting its Annual Conference on Citizenship (a.k.a. the “It’s Your Democracy!” conference) on October 17th and 18th at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C. Be sure to mark your calendar and, if you have any questions, you can email NCoC at [email protected].
As always, thank you for your support.
