We've also taken part in Sister District Action Network's civic engagement initiatives, forged partnerships with Reclaim Our Vote, MassVOTE, and Ohio Progressive Action Leaders' Mission Vote to expand voter registration, and maintained ongoing relationships with Indivisible and other progressive groups in New England. 

Upcoming Events

Our volunteers host events all over Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Events are a great way to get involved, find inspiration, and make a difference. We believe anyone can become an activist -- and after getting a taste of what's possible, an organizer too! Check out our calendar of upcoming events
