“Advancement Project National Office is a proud partner of the OWN Your Vote campaign. Our organization partners with bold, movement- and strategy-minded visionaries and doers to undo the legacy of Jim Crow embedded in our voting structure,” explained Judith Browne Dianis, executive director of the organization. “Our partners are in the forefront of battles to restore voting rights to populations who were overly criminalized and remove barriers to the ballot before Election Day.”

Advancement Project National Office is an organization of pioneers in the fight to eliminate the wrongs embedded in our nation’s voting structure by establishing a national right to vote. We have been on the front lines of fights for voting rights because access to the ballot gives communities of color power and self-determination in the matters that impact their lives.
