State Voices is a national network of permanent, nonpartisan, state-based coalitions working year-round to create a more accessible, inclusive, and representative democracy by lifting the voices of the New American Majority (people of color, youth, and single women) and building the strength of their leaders and organizations.

We believe an open and just society can only be achieved through a concerted, long-term effort to bring historically marginalized communities to the center of public discourse and make underrepresented populations full participants in civic life.
