About New York Civic Engagement Table
The New York Civic Engagement Table plays a crucial role as the shared resources, and capacity-building hub designed to improve progressive voter engagement. With a commitment to the strategic and continuous coordination of electoral, base-building, and issue advocacy activities, our 60 partner organizations look to produce lifelong voters, develop leaders, and win on issues that affect impacted communities. NYCET proactively assesses the needs of our partner organizations, investigates and pilots new tools and tactics; and if they are demonstrated effective, enables their adoption broadly. NYCET also bridges the organizing and tech communities and creates opportunities to bring the capabilities of the tech industry to progressive organizations. This allows our partners to focus their efforts on resource intensive base building and organizing.
Since the creation of NYCET in 2009 as a fiscally sponsored project of the Public Policy and Education Fund and now NEO Philanthropy, we have identified 2.1 million New Yorkers who are supportive of progressive issues. This base has grown from 416,687 at the end of 2016. Our partners have moved many to action – voting, contacting elected officials, and attending rallies. Our community of New Yorkers has been contacted many times over by our partner organizations as part of the deep organizing and ecosystem of Integrated Voter Engagement critical to our work of building an inclusive and representative democracy. NYCET is an affiliate of the State Voices national network.
