A Guide for Building Cross-Sector Collaborations to Strengthen Democracy
By Astrid M. OchoaBack to Training & Resources
This white paper highlights the success — and learnings — of the Future of California Elections model and best practices for those interested in building cross-sector collaborative networks in other states. Beyond just finding more inclusive solutions to today’s election administration issues, a cross-sector network like this can help create a community of support between election officials and nonprofit organizations to better defend our democratic process against those who wish to usurp it. Additionally, this model can help election officials and voter advocates rebuild public trust and enhance participation in the democratic process by having a diverse group of election advocates and administrators at the table together to develop and advocate for inclusive elections policies and practices.
