About The Michigan Center for Civic Engagement and Advocacy

Location:

3003 East Michigan Ave., Lansing, MI 48912, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote equity and reduce barriers to civic engagement in local government, education, and matters like public safety. We work to strengthen community structures by advocating for people and causes of great merit and need. Our vision is to see everyday citizens and taxpayers excited about democratic participation, free of hopelessness and helplessness as often seen during periods of civil distress.

Description

After seeing the sense of hopelessness and powerlessness among hard-working and taxing paying citizens, I was challenged within myself to empower common people to be civically engaged and involved. For some members of society, there are a variety of barriers that may impede democratic participation. Our primary purpose is to empower, provide and connect people to the resources and education needed to fully enjoy the benefits of their citizenship. A common prompt for this action is: What happens after the rally, after the protest, and now what do we do?

We will work in two basic policy areas: public safety, and k-12 education advocacy. The organization also plans to broaden its campaigns and aims, to include disability-related access advocacy.

The Michigan Center for Civic Engagement and Advocacy was founded this year and we are seeking volunteers to propel the organization and be change agents in their own geographical areas. We are based in Michigan but work on issues of national importance.
