Invest in Organizers

When you donate to Give Us The Ballot, you'll be investing in a portfolio of hyper effective Black and Brown led community organizers. Click on the tabs to see who you will be supporting and learn more about our strategy.

Our organizer's ability to build power in the swing states will be one of the key factors determining how the next several decades plays out in this country. If Black and Brown communities are able to consistently have a powerful voice in these states, it will have a massive impact on policy and leadership at the highest levels.

These are states with large, disenfranchised Black and Brown populations. Organizers in these states typically receive very few resources, but with proper support have the potential to build significant power. Support here helps combat some of the country's worst policies and leaders, and - over the long term - have the potential to go from red to purple and become the next Georgia and Arizona.

These are some of the nation's best large Black and Brown led organizers. They play a pivotal role in turning out voters, building narratives and keeping issues relevant in the national press, and supporting networks of smaller organizers. Their leaders are some of the most well-known and effective civil rights leaders of this era.

Nearly 400
voter suppression bills have been introduced in 2021. The best way to combat this assault on our Democracy is by funding community organizing.

Cheating is Their Only Chance.

In 2020, organizers helped secure a Democrat controlled White House and Senate. 

The Republican reaction? They’ve introduced nearly 400 voter suppression bills in 2021.
If we stop this effort, we could unlock the most progressive decade in history. When you support Give Us
