Summary

Stronger U.S. works to advance a multi-issue economic fairness and pro-democracy agenda using an integrated citizen engagement model that focuses intensive attention year-round on recruiting and training volunteers to become “whole citizens” who participate fully in civic life as voters, issue advocates and community leaders – and who can train others to do the same. This fall we are launching a voter registration project in Ohio. If you want to increase voter registration and ensure everyone’s voice is heard in our democracy, you should apply!
