Our Mission To enhance civic engagement in the formation of public policy through non-partisan leadership development, research support, base-building, and technical assistance for advocacy groups, associations, elected officials, and community-based organizations with the purpose of improving the quality of life for vulnerable and marginalized communities in the Southern region. Our Principles Building Community Awareness & Empowerment We build community awareness and empowerment by organizing civic institutions, raising the awareness of diverse constituencies, and participating in community, statewide, and regional coalitions that support and increase the capacity of local organizations. We create new opportunities for community engagement and activism by acting as a fiscal agent for local startup non-profits. Building Community Leadership The Leadership component of One Voice's programs develops the capacity of power and progressive community leadership. We assist local and state elected officials and non-profit leaders with identifying and implementing best practices through training, technical support, and opportunities to further their development as leaders and advocates.
