About Us

Organization Overview

Minnesota Voice is a nonprfit that host the We Vote Minnesota coalition. This program was launched in

2014 and is the hub for civic engagement among nonpartisan organizations.

Established in 2011, Minnesota Voice Foundation is a member-based coalition of non-profit

organizations working toward permanent change in racial, social, and economic justice by increasing

civic engagement and voter participation across the state, especially focused in underrepresented

communities; making sure that every Minnesotans’ voice is heard, and the state reflects the values of its

people. Our partners are grounded in the belief that: decision makers will be held accountable when

collective power has been built; more participation equals a stronger democracy; and that public

institutions will improve people’s lives when they advance people driven solutions and address racial

and economic disparities.

We are the backbone strategists for the We Vote MN coalition’s execution of a collective impact model,

using data driven best practices, leadership development, and grants to help our partners maximize our

collective capacities. To be a part of the coalition, an organization makes a commitment to leading with

racial equity, to meeting measurable goals as defined in our annual written collective impact plan and a

subsequent written division of labor. Our organizational goals are:

● Promote and engage non-profits as key messengers; entry points for voter engagement;

incubators of untapped social capital that could be harnessed with investments in leadership

development inside and outside the metro areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul

● Fill the gap for nonprofit professional development in civic engagement for communities of

color in the state

● People from communities of color learn skills to engage fully in our democracy

● People from communities of color are informed of the effects of public policy on them and their

communities and have the means to address their concerns
