About Us

We Support Public Health & Civic Participation

Democracy makes our communities more inclusive and healthier. Our votes affect health policy, clean air, housing, transit and funding for hospitals. Voting also helps people secure a seat at the table and feel more included within their communities.

When we’re healthier, we’re more likely to vote. And communities that vote experience better health. Learn More
