The Issues

We are community-based, community-oriented, and community-grown organizers in Newport News and Hampton, Virginia.  Our main areas of impact are voter engagement, civic involvement, and leadership development.

For voter engagement, we are working hard in the community to raise awareness about up-coming election days, the impact of our voice and our vote, and how to make sure citizens are ready to vote. Click here for more information on Voter Engagement initiatives.

For civic involvement, we have organizers working on specific issues.  From an asset-based perspective, we help local communities and neighborhoods make a positive impact in the following areas:

  1. Education
  2. Criminal Justice Reform
  3. Mental Health
  4. Women’s Empowerment
  5.               Voting/Elections

Also be sure to follow our social media pages for updates and announcements!




For leadership development, we are providing resources and programs to help each volunteer grow in their activism efforts.  We will also be facilitating a 2018 summer program at An Achievable Dream Middle & High School.  We hosted #YOLOSPARK17 last summer with the SPARK Extension programs of Newport News Public Schools for two weeks in August.
