About Us

Every Voice, Every Vote brings newsrooms, community organizations, and Philadelphia residents together in a collaborative effort to address our city’s most pressing needs.

We want to ensure that the issues which matter most to all of Philadelphia’s communities are front and center in newsrooms, public debate and candidate platforms. 

We're dedicated to providing access to high-quality information and tools that will help all city residents harness their power and hold Philly's elected officials accountable today, tomorrow, and beyond. Democracy can work how it should—for all of us—if we demand it together.
