20 Years of Working Together to Win

Over the past 20 years, America Votes has grown from a small coalition of 30 organizations into a leader in the work to build a stronger, more representative democracy.

The AV Coalition is now engaged on every race, from local elections to high-profile national contests. We also advocate for pro-voter policies, from expanding access to Vote By Mail to increasing the length of early voting periods.

Thanks to our work, the progressive coalition is bigger and stronger than it was 20 years ago, but the work is never done. We’re proud of our impact and committed to building on our success in 2024 and beyond.
