Organization Overview

State Voices is a national network – built from the states up – that helps grassroots organizations win civic engagement victories and build long-term political power. We currently support the work of 501(c)(3) organizations or “state tables” in twenty-three states that connect hundreds of state, local and national affiliate organizations. State Voices has provided our affiliates with a variety of resources and tools to create support and enhance the impact of 501 (c)(3) civic engagement organizations across the country.

The Florida Civic Engagement Table is a statewide network of organizations. Partners share a vision of full participation and representation in our democracy of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities – historically underrepresented and marginalized communities in Florida. This work requires vision, cooperation, and long-term strategic planning, as the goal of full participation by BIPOC communities cannot be achieved through one election cycle, one legislative fight, or one campaign. Together, partners build the power needed to break down barriers to civic participation, restore confidence in government, engage historically marginalized populations, and center public discourse on racial and socioeconomic justice.
