Perhaps most importantly, the BISC Foundation serves as a critical link between the diverse communities and issues affected by ballot measures. Over the last four years, we have helped start new in-state alliances and strengthened existing tables in California, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, and Washington. In several states, this has resulted in joint research and public education messaging.
In addition, BISC hosts the annual Road Ahead conference, the only convening of its kind that focuses exclusively on ballot measures. The meeting is attended by a broad cross-section of people working to support effective civic engagement and a broad range of social change issues.
