At Conservation Voters for Idaho, we’ve begun the important work of empowering our local communities with the launch of a nonpartisan voting rights effort. This program will create infrastructure for a year-round voter rights program dedicated to civic education, engagement, expansion, and protections.
Participating in our democracy is currently a challenge to many Idahoans. We at CVI will work to help Idahoans in underrepresented communities learn about the decision-making process, and cultivate opportunities to participate and contribute to the improvement of one’s neighborhood, community, and state. We believe in order to create a healthy democracy, everyone must have equitable access to the ballot box. While there is no one size fits all solution to our democratic deficits, our commitment is to create a long term, sustainable effort to engage and empower underrepresented communities here in Idaho. The fight for our natural resources and quality of life is intrinsically intertwined with a strong and resilient democracy.
