Movement Voter Project "connects donors to local grassroots groups that both mobilize voters and build long-term power for the progressive movement."

Big 5 Battleground Fund

While the Democrats obsess over the primary, the GOP is focused on the Big Five states most likely to decide the 2020 general election: Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Arizona.[1]
We need to invest now in local groups in these Big Five states. They know how to organize their own communities. But they need our support - today, not next year.

Open Letter to the Biden Campaign on “Unprepared”

Open Letter to the Biden Campaign on “Unprepared” was released May 12 2020.

":Our demands: The country’s greatest priority at this moment is to beat the COVID-19 crisis, and this requires embracing principles of antiracist solidarity and international cooperation. The Biden campaign can and should beat Trump and the GOP with a message centered on our real public health needs and the progressive values that are required to meet those needs. The “Unprepared” ad must be taken down, and all campaign messaging that fuels anti-Asian racism and China-bashing must end. We refuse to allow the Biden campaign to sacrifice our dignity in the name of political expediency."

About

Movement Voter Project "is a service to donors – from grassroots individual donors to major donors and foundations. We talent-scout both national movement-building efforts and local efforts in all 50 states that are focused on voter engagement.
These are organizations where an extra $10 or $100,000 will make the greatest difference for achieving progress in keeping our democratic institutions viable and accountable, and on issues like economic fairness, environmental sustainability, racial justice, immigrant rights, women’s rights, LGBT rights, and access to healthcare.
Our work, and the work of the organizations we highlight, is ongoing, and our name reflects that. That’s why we go not only by the MVP moniker, but by the year we face: In our founding year, we were Movement 2016, we are Movement 2017, and will become Movement 2018, and so on. Our project is committed to both short-term gains and long-term change.
We spent six months in 2016, and consulted over 50 experts, to develop a list of local movement-building efforts, a list that continues to grow and be refined. Specifically, we have sought organizations that are:
1. Trusted messengers who organize year-round on local and national issues that have deep salience to their local constituencies (racial and criminal justice, immigrant rights, college affordability, climate, living wages, etc.).
2. Rooted in the communities they serve and organize (low-income communities, communities of color, immigrants, youth and students, renters, etc.).
3. Committed to voter engagement (voter registration, voter education, voter turnout, and election protection).
4. Experienced in deploying proven high-touch, face-to- face voter organizing techniques at scale.
5. Collaborative, and known to “play well with others” organizationally.[2]
