Equal Ground is a community centered organization engaging the rising American electorate through equal access to education about voting and empowerment. We work to fight for the issues we believe in, from equality, a living wage, healthcare, to fair elections, climate change and social justice.
We focus our efforts on the rising American electorate with the goal of building and expanding current capacity in underserved communities. Actions include strategic planning, leadership development, petition collection, voter registration, and voter education and turnout.
With support from funders committed to community-based power, we work with allies and partners in the community to create strategic plans and produce quality deliverables for the issues we care about.
