Civic Participation Action Fund |
With important social justice movements around the nation gaining momentum, committed advocacy and voter engagement is critical. To continue Atlantic’s support for policy change in the United States beyond our limited life, Atlantic has established a new, independent Washington, D.C.-based organization, the Civic Participation Action Fund (CPAF).
CPAF will support projects and organizations that promote racial equality, expand civic engagement and increase economic opportunity. Operating with a small staff led by Atlantic’s former U.S. Country Director Stephen McConnell, the organization will work primarily with underrepresented communities in their effort to gain a stronger, more influential voice in elections and in the legislative process.
