Force Multiplier raises money for Voter Empowerment Groups who work across the country to ensure that all Americans
CAN + DO VOTE!
This month we're focusing on Ohio + Montana.
Our new tax deductible fund supports 4 groups working to register + mobilize
+ lift up the voices of youth + women + native people in these two states.
• Forward Montana Foundation works to build political power in Montana’s young people. They focus on leadership development, voter education + registration (including pre-registration of 17 year-olds), issues advocacy, voter turnout. They do year-round registration using community events like music festivals to activate young voters. Largely urban, they also conduct a campus tour that includes rural tribal colleges. Their goal for this election cycle is to register 8,000 voters.
• Western Native Voice Education Project Montana’s Native population is about 9%, evenly divided between tribal + urban areas. WNV is active on all eight Montana Indian reservations as well as major urban centers. Their focus is on promoting access to voter registration kiosks + on outreach to youth, especially those turning 18. Their goal is to register 1,000 voters this year.
“We envision a world where every person can live in a just and sustainable communityand know that their voice is being heard at all levels of government.”
Ta’jin Perez, Deputy Director,
• Ohio Women's Alliance An abortion rights ballot initiative this November presents an important opportunity to register + mobilize voters. OHA is the lead statewide group doing signature collection + organizing around this issue. They have a goal of 400,000 voter contacts by phone, text, digital: site-based + in-person canvassing.
• Ohio Student Association organizes youth around issues that affect their lives like educational funding, LGBTQ rights + abortion rights. Their goals in 2023 are to support the abortion rights initiative, defeat bills attacking LGBTQ youth + advocate for college + county veteran IDs for voting. They plan to collect 5,000 signatures + turn out the youth vote for the reproductive freedom ballot initiative.
"OSA isn’t about speaking for young people— it’s about empowering young people with the tools to not only speak for themselves, but to organize their communities and build power to win the future we all deserve. "
Rachael Collyer, Program Director
