Florida

State Voices Florida (SVFL) is a partner-focused civic engagement organization whose mission is to engage Florida’s historically underrepresented communities in the democratic process.

SVFL’s non-partisan work helps our network of nonprofit partners align and coordinate, supports data and research requests, and contributes to efforts intended to increase the ability of the nonprofit progressive community to create change.

SVFL has employed the principles of collective impact, to help partner organizations build the capacity through data analysis, shared resources, and by amplifying the voices of BIPOC communities. Our collective work focuses on three programs: Civic Engagement (voter education, registration and turnout, issue advocacy and constituency engagement), Civic Access (voting rights and election administration), and Civic Representation (census and redistricting). SVFL provides training programs for organizers and hosts a robust fellowship program that works on building a bench of organizers ready to do the work needed throughout Florida’s diverse and marginalized communities.

SVFL sustains this work through the collective action of its 94 partner organizations. Working together, SVFL provides the data, communications tools, and support partners needs and to help create a healthy and thriving democracy. This year-round work is essential to creating a more accessible, inclusive, and representative democracy through organizational support and voter education.
