The impact of your support
Emgage is working to equip local constituencies with nonpartisan voter education and help break down the big issues in a way that makes sense to voters. Ultimately, the most educated voters are the most robust advocates. Emgage focuses on this programming through informative town halls, candidate forums, developing issue guides around civil rights issues and broader issues of income inequality, access to healthcare, environmental protection, immigration and criminal justice reform.

Why this work is important
According to a study conducted by Pew Research Center, there are more than 3 million Muslim Americans in the United States today, with many living in swing states. The impact Muslim Americans, when organized and engaged, can have on their communities is no longer a theory, but a growing reality. Civic society works best when our communities are represented and accountable to the interests of their citizens. However, this process only works if citizens are engaged and active in the political process.
Our track record
Every year, Emgage conducts data-driven Get Out The Vote campaigns for local, state and federal elections that include voter registration, early voting initiatives, phone banking, canvassing and voter education. During the 2018 Midterm Elections, we engaged with over 130,000 voters. Following the 2018 elections, we produced a report that showed historic Muslim voter turnout in key states: Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Virginia. Muslim Americans voted 25 points higher than they did in 2014, while the general population voted just 14 points higher than they did in 2014 in the same four states.
