State Voices is a left-of-center advocacy group founded in 2008.  State Voices connects advocacy and activist organizations to each other so they can collaborate in “state tables” on mutual policy goals.  The organizations it works with are typically left-of-center or environmentalist in nature.
Redistricting and the 2020 U.S. Census
An immediate goal for State Voices is to implement redistricting via changes to the 2020 U.S. Census. This includes taking measures to further account for minority groups, youth, and low-income individuals.  On its website, State Voices says that they are “also committed to ensuring fair redistricting so that boundaries are not manipulated to favor political parties.”  A claim that holds less water when considering that State Voices almost exclusively works with left-of-center organizations.
State Voices has received substantial funding from left-of-center foundations. These include the Bohemian Foundation, Open Society Institute (now the Open Society Foundations), Robert R. McCormick Tribune Foundation, Tides Foundation, and the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.
The Bohemian Foundation gave $50,000 in 2012, the Open Society Foundations gave a combined $200,000 in 2008 and 2009, the Robert R. McCormick Tribune Foundation gave $50,000 in 2013, the Tides Foundation gave a combined $190,000 in 2009 and 2012, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation gave a total $500,000 from 2014 to 2016.
