Who's Fighting For You?

Learn right here about consumer groups that tackle consumer issues for you. Each month, we'll feature a different group.

This month's featured consumer group:

  • State Voices

Organizations working in historically underrepresented and socially responsible communities are breaking out of their narrowly defined and out-dated issue silos to come together and share ideas, share resources and cooperate to win policy and civic engagement victories for change.
