Educate: June 2021 - June 2022 We will educate stakeholders from target constituencies with smartly packaged research on the problems with House elections and our proposed solutions. We will fund and share research addressing questions from prospective allies. We will track the: (1) number of organizations that join our Representation Now coalition; (2) diversity of coalition members; and (3) number of educational events delivered.
Engage: July 2022 - December 2023 We will engage coalition members in the design of a strategic plan for a national call to action. We will track progress through the: (1) number of organizations engaged with the coalition; (2) number of women, young people, and people of color who are leaders and spokespeople; and (3) individual and collective reach of coalition members.
Empower: January 2024 - June 2026 We will empower Representation Now members with tools needed to lead a national call for action and educate and engage their communities to create the conditions for electoral reform. We will track the: (1) number and diversity of traditional and social media hits for the project; (2) the shift in discourse about the need for systemic reform; (3) the success of the coalition itself to bridge divides across racial, age, and partisan lines; (4) the impact of our coalition in expanding FairVote’s coalition work; and (5) the number of high impact donors - and amount given - to coalition members to support their work.
Our ultimate success will be measured by the number of women, people of color, and young people elected to Congress.
