Michigan Voices is a backbone organization that seeks to help build civic engagement capacity in progressive nonprofit groups that are led by and engage BIPOC people.

Our table partners consist of grass-seed, grassroots and grass-tops organizations looking to build progressive power for BIPOC people in the State of Michigan. They range in age, race, and financial capacity, but they are aligned around a specific set of values.

​Our purpose is to provide resources to help nonprofit organizations that are led by and engage BIPOC people to become self-sustaining in their mission to bring social justice to their communities, including:

  • Civic Engagement: Establish and/or maintain engagement hubs in Detroit, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Flint, Saginaw, and Lansing
  • Civic Access/Civic Representation: Support Local Democracy Teams to advance redistricting, reduce money in politics, and increase access to voting
  • Skills Trainings: Coordinate trainings in areas like volunteer recruitment and development, organizing, campaign planning, field skills, and technology
