CIVIC NATION OVERVIEW
Civic Nation believes that empowering people to take action can change culture. We address key social issues – access to education, gender equality, civic engagement and dismantling hate/discrimination – and keep them at the forefront of dialogue and policy. Rather than approach these issues only with the intent to change policy, we are building grassroots movements to change the world—from the ground up.
Through organizing, engagement and public awareness we work with public and private
partners to inspire, educate and activate people around the issues that are important to our country.
Our initiatives empower people to be agents of change in their own lives. We inspire with culturally relevant content that captures attention and sparks action. We educate by providing direct access to information, tools and resources. We activate by helping communities organize by supplying toolkits, campaign materials and digital tools.
Current initiatives include ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, It’s On Us, The United State of Women, and #VoteTogether. Civic Nation also leads the Creative Alliance, a coalition of 100+ ad agencies, media partners and brands who use their powers for the good of the country.
