Run for Something Action Fund, Ballot Initiative Strategy Center & Democracy Policy Network

Run for Something Action Fund (RFS AF) supports millennial and gen-z involvement in local government through outreach, education, and research. RFS AF builds the next generation of civic-minded, passionate voters, ensuring that young people are engaged and informed about the democratic process. The Ballot Initiative Strategy Center (BISC) strengthens democracy by implementing a national progressive strategy for ballot measures rooted in building state-based power. BISC works across many organizations, with local, state, and national leaders to analyze and support the ballot measure landscape. The Democracy Policy Network (DPN) provides policy support to the next generation of state leaders working to deepen democracy in statehouses across America. We do this by organizing people to gather, package, organize, and amplify transformative state policies across every issue in every state.
