The Massachusetts Voter Table (MVT) (mavotertable.org) was formed in 2011 to build power among the “New American Majority” – low-income a, people of color, young people, and new citizens. Our theory of change is rooted in an analysis that grassroots organizing is the means to achieving racial and economic justice. We utilize and embed civic engagement tactics as a means to build power. MVT partner organizations work across Massachusetts where there is a density of low income and communities of color. The Massachusetts Voter Table is the local affiliate of State Voices. The Massachusetts Voter Table is a fiscally sponsored organization of TSNE. (tsne.org)
