What is the Safe Voting Action Fund?
The Safe Voting Action Fund is a fiscally sponsored project of Sixteen Thirty Fund. Safe Voting Action Fund supported federal and state advocacy efforts to implement election reforms that prioritized health, safety, and accessibility in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Why do we think this project is important?
COVID-19 necessitated unprecedented changes to election administration in 2020. It was critical to ensure that voting was safe and accessible for eligible voters across the country. Safe in-person and early voting options, as well as increased vote-by-mail, were key ways to safeguard voting access during the pandemic. The Safe Voting Action Fund supported efforts to promote these policy changes and to ensure that they were implemented effectively.
How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting the Safe Voting Action Fund?
In 2020, Democracy Fund Voice approved a grant of $4,050,000 to the Safe Voting Action Fund.
