The Network - Voices For Power

The Network

We’re a network of coalitions, advocates, and organizers fighting for BIPOC political power and a healthy democracy.

We are pro-TLGBQIA+, pro-BIPOC, pro-immigrant justice and pro-disability justice. We center the needs of currently and formerly incarcerated people, low income, underemployed, and working-class people across the country in cities, suburbs, and rural communities.

State Voices Network Map

The State Voices affiliated network is composed of nonpartisan state-based coalitions called “State Tables.” State Tables work with hundreds of grassroots organizations to break down barriers to civic participation and invest in BIPOC leadership and organizing.

Together, our organizations pool resources and work to achieve shared goals that none of us could meet on our own.

Advocates engage in issue-based organizing and civic engagement, civic representation, and civic access. This includes census, voter registration, voting rights, Election Protection, election turnout, and redistricting. It also includes organizing around areas like immigrant justice, justice for Indigenous and Native folks, police and prison divestment, and a pro-Black democracy. In addition to State Tables, we also work in Emerging States—states without an official State Table—through our Tools For All (TFA) program.

We also offer data and technology to hundreds of organizations though our Tools For All program in all 50 states.

Stories from the People

There are a number of key things we’re working on to build BIPOC political power. We can start by making voting and access to voting a truly universal right, and lifting up oppressed communities—and the organizations that serve them—in the decision making process.

Juanica Fernandes, Executive Director, Florida Civic Engagement Table

I’m thrilled to be a part of the State Voices network, which I’ve already come to learn is an incredible, powerful, and fierce community of humans. I am so excited to work alongside the SV team as well as Table Directors and staff across the country, whom I have so much respect for and gratitude to.

Irene Shin, Executive Director of the Virginia Civic Engagement Table

Centering leadership development as a value of organizations that work in civic engagement is key to making lasting social impact in BIPOC communities.
