WOMEN ENGAGED is an initiative that uses a creative, hands-on learning approach to advancing Black women’s human rights, youth empowerment, and civic engagement efforts in Georgia. WE offers leadership development opportunities, public policy advocacy, savvy communications and outreach strategies, and year-round non-partisan voter engagement campaigns.
The WE Vote. WE Rise! (WVWR) program is a non-partisan integrated voter engagement program that develops the civic participation of new and inactive voters by providing leadership opportunities during ‘Get out the Vote’ campaigns and other community outreach activities. We use the Voter Activation Network database or VAN and invest in new technologies to stay engaged with recently contacted voters. Base-building with this new set of supporters through our year-round civic engagement efforts includes response calls, door-to-door conversations, phone banking, social media networking, and other experimental ways to learn more about the issues that our set of voters deem important is building voting power and helping to create an equitable Georgia.
