Sisters for Civics is a strong and growing coalition dedicated to ensuring that Black, LatinX, Native, and AAPI women and girls are seen and heard in our shared civic life.
Through partnerships with communities in Middle and South Georgia, our goal is to expand the opportunities for women of color to organize and take action, especially in rural communities.
Fair Count, a nonpartisan nonprofit, founded Sisters for Civics as part of its commitment to building long-term power, because real civic power is a long game. As leaders, partners, mothers, sisters, and daughters, it’s our turn to lead the charge for change.
Your passion for creating a vibrant civic ecosystem in the South has already helped to turn systematic breakdowns into opportunities to build prosperity and progress for all. Imagine how much change that power could effect when it’s combined into a collective of empowered women.
As part of Sisters for Civics, you’ll be able to contribute to regular membership meetings where we can share updates, discuss event and partnership opportunities, and solidify strategies that ensure women of color get a seat at the table – and keep it.
"Democracy is stronger when it’s equitable and all eligible voters have fair access. We will show the world — we’re here to stay."
Additional Opportunities to Stay Civically Engaged
Founded in 2019 and anchored in Georgia, Fair Count works to build long-term power in communities that have been historically undercounted in the decennial census, underrepresented at the polls, and whose communities are often torn apart in redistricting.
Fair Count is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to partnering with Hard to Count (HTC) communities to achieve a fair and accurate count of all people in Georgia and the nation in the 2020 Census, and to strengthening the pathways to greater civic participation.
