Supporting Social Change Leaders


However good our ideas, we also need ballot-measure leaders with the skills to implement them. That’s why the BISC Foundation has partnered with Wellstone Action Fund to create an advanced ballot measure civic engagement training program.

This first-of-its-kind training program is a pipeline for the next generation of ballot measure leaders. We’re taking an active role in creating the capacity needed to create the social change we seek.

The Foundation also provides ongoing technical assistance to civic engagement efforts across in the country. Each year, we respond to more than 200 requests from across the country, addressing a wide variety of issues such as LGBT equality, women’s health and reproductive justice, collective bargaining rights, voting rights, and economic fairness. The assistance we provide includes assessments of the political landscape, advice on strategy and tactics, and analyses of funding, budgets, messaging and operations.
