Civic Nation is a home for changemakers who inspire, educate, and activate people around the issues that will define this generation. We empower people to take on the biggest challenges of our time — strengthening democracy; foster civic engagement, social justice and voter participation; addressing public health crises; fighting for gender equity; and more. Civic Nation drives real, meaningful change by shifting culture, systems, and policy. We organize at every level and serve as a connector — of people and programs, of grassroots activists and leaders of industries and organizations, of ideas and the resources to make them reality. Our goal is to empower individuals, companies, institutions, and organizations to create a more inclusive, equitable America.
At Citizen, we envision a society where more people work together to achieve meaningful progress on issues that matter. Our mission is to empower change-makers with the actionable data and tools to transcend differences, improve lives, and drive real impact. We're building a platform for the long-term with clients and partners who benefit from an open ecosystem of best-in-class analytics, strategy, marketing, and organizing support.
The New York City Campaign Finance Board is a nonpartisan, independent city agency that ensures local elections are fair, inclusive, and open. We boost participation among voters and candidates alike so that our elected officials address the needs of our diverse communities and the issues voters care about. We do this by empowering New Yorkers who are less likely to vote, reducing barriers to running for office, and offering solutions to improve our election system. Established in 1988, the agency also equips New Yorkers with information about the candidates on their ballot and how their campaigns are funded. Our matching funds program matches every $1 from a local donor with up to $8 of city funding, encouraging city candidates to focus on their communities instead of special interests.
The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget is a bipartisan, non-profit organization committed to educating the public about issues that have significant fiscal policy impact. The Committee is made up of some of the nation's leading budget experts including many of the past Chairmen and Directors of the Budget Committees, the Congressional Budget Office, the Office of Management and Budget, the Government Accountability Office, and the Federal Reserve Board.
Protect Democracy is a nonpartisan nonprofit with an urgent mission: to prevent our democracy from declining into a more authoritarian form of government. We do this by holding the President and the Executive Branch accountable to the laws and longstanding practices that have protected our democracy through both Democratic and Republican administrations. We have seen an unprecedented tide of authoritarian-style politics sweep the country that is fundamentally at odds with the Bill of Rights, the constitutional limitations on the role of the President, and the laws and unwritten norms that prevent overreach and abuse of power. The only limits to prevent a slide away from our democratic traditions will be those that are imposed by the Courts, Congress, and the American people.
The National Association of Nonpartisan Reformers (NANR) is a member-led Association dedicated to structural election reforms in the public interest. We provide support to our member organizations through shared resources, best practices, and regular convenings.
More In Common
More in Common is a new international initiative, set up in 2017 to build communities and societies that are stronger, more united and more resilient to the increasing threats of polarisation and social division. We believe that social fracturing is one of the most pressing issues of our time. And that new approaches are needed if we are to build communities that have more in common than that which divides them. Over the next two years, in partnership with others, we will conduct research and pilot different approaches to learn what works. So that we are ready to scale and make a real difference in the countries in which we work from 2020. We are building the founding team to make this happen. Although we are only at the beginning of our journey as an organization, we know one thing for certain: our team will be our greatest asset.
