We know that organizing does not and should not end with an election. Community engagement at the grassroots level is crucial for both the long-term success and sustainability of progressive policies and for overcoming current efforts to suppress votes.
BridgeTogether will invest in existing, local, on-the-ground partners aligned with our mission, helping ensure off-year investments in civic engagement and voter education and allowing organizations to build and maintain their staff. We will offer grants between $50,000 and $250,000, depending on the organization.
Gov. Deval Patrick hosts a new podcast series on what it means to Be American today. This exciting, new podcast will feature interviews with political figures, elected officials, and on-the-ground grassroots organizations in several states that are organizing voters, not just in the days before each election, but 365 days a year.
