Congressman Keith Ellison has consistently stated, “If you’re not at the table – you’re on the menu.” Every citizen in the United States has a role in civic society, and voter education is a vital component of this duty.
Such education will pave the way to leverage our voices in issues impacting us, develop relationships with our public representatives, and ultimately, generate proactive input, rather than merely reactive responses.
Muslim American communities are vastly diverse and profoundly intersectional: we represent the very pluralism that this country strives to embody. If harnessed properly, we can be a tremendously compelling force within our American democracy.
Emgage seeks to equip local constituencies with nonpartisan voter education, and help break down issues to make them accessible to voters of all backgrounds.
Ultimately, the most educated voters are the most robust advocators. Emgage focuses on this programming through informative town halls, candidate forums, and issue guides surrounding civil rights issues, income inequality, access to healthcare, environmental protection, immigration, and criminal justice reform.
The dataset changes the mindset.
Emgage communicates with voters by conducting various polls and surveys through live and automatic calls to collect data on voter trends and issues that drive our community to the polls. Gathering research on key issues will not only help us understand trends within our community, but will allow us to efficiently work towards optimal voter turnout.
This data is presented to elected officials and candidates to help them better understand the Muslim American community. Muslim American’s contribute heavily to society, and it is imperative that elected officials and candidates engage our community.
Our webinar workshops are designed to engage and educate individuals, and keep them up to date on key issues. We bring political education to your living room. Being politically aware has never been so easy.
Elections can be a lengthy process, given the number of constituents and issues involved. Our voter guides help break down the core issues and values of potential candidates in a way that makes sense to your everyday life.
