With more than 70 percent of governors up for election in the midterms, the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities has been monitoring the number of states that may wind up with new leadership. In preparation for this potential transition, we are seeking input from Alliance members that may be used for creating a toolkit for new governors to help incoming officials become connected with members and get up to speed on the needs of and work in specific programs and services that advance child, individual, family, and community well-being.

If you are interested in sharing your successes, concerns, and organizational information email the Alliance Office of Public Policy and Mobilization and include “Governor Toolkit” in the subject line so that we may create these state toolkits. You may also call and leave this information on our new Alliance policy hotline at 414-359-6626.  

How are you engaging people to register and get out to vote? There many different approaches to voter engagement—the Alliance would like to hear and share yours. After the elections we will provide a special report on what Alliance members did to get out the vote.

Go to the Alliance Policy Action Center to share your story.  

By mobilizing our communities to vote, we engage the voices of those we serve and activate a group of voters that has historically supported policies that bolster people and communities, strengthen family well-being, and promote respect and dignity for all.
