Equity in Democracy

Our Mission

Persistent and unyielding in our commitment to a just multiracial democracy, Public Wise fights to secure a government that reflects the will and protects the rights of the people. We accomplish this through education, research, organizing, funding, and partnerships that support more voting and more equitable representation.

Vision

Public Wise envisions a democracy that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people, with a government that is representative, accountable, trusted, and transparent.
