Our Initiatives

Civic Nation is home to six high-impact national initiatives that drive meaningful change. Our initiatives take on the biggest issues of our time — strengthening democracy; fostering civic engagement; and fighting for gender equity, racial justice, economic mobility, and more. 

Our Model

We believe our nation's biggest and most complex challenges require innovative solutions. Our centralized model is set up to be highly responsive, while drawing on deep expertise in grassroots organizing, data and analytics, and creative communications and marketing.

Civic Nation’s model enables us to quickly launch new initiatives to address pressing issues, like COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, while continuing our focus on enduring social challenges around civic engagement and gender equity.

Through a series of case studies, the report dives deep into how we protected democracy, responded to the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, promoted vaccine equity with Made to Save, and forged innovative corporate partnerships with companies like Snapchat and Lime.
