Tent Talk: Center for Common Ground with Andrea Miller

September 26, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join us in a discussion with Andrea Miller, founding Board member of Center for Common Ground.

Center for Common Ground was founded to educate and empower under-represented voters in voter suppression states to engage in elections and advocate for their right to vote. In partnership with local, on-the-ground organizations, they build advocacy and voting campaigns that educate and mobilize Black voters across the South. Together, they provide voters with the tools they need to learn how national, state and local policy and politics impact their communities, where their elected officials stand, and what can be done to create needed change.

They partner with local on-the-ground organizations in our target states of Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. They also build technology tools to help empower local communities and organizing networks long after elections are over.

Andrea Miller is the Founding Board Member of the Center for Common Ground, Executive Director of People Demanding Action, Founding President of the National Women’s Political Caucus of Virginia, and a member of the Democracy and Governance working group of the Virginia Green New Deal. Andrea is an IT and Political Director and a digital and elections strategist. She designs and administers digital phone banks and texting programs. From 2013 to 2015, she led the Progressive Round Table on Capitol Hill, bringing together members of Congress, activists, and non-profit leaders. Her expertise is in voting rights, climate, and the Equal Rights Amendment. She has successfully advocated for legislation on both the Federal and State level. In 2008 she was the Democratic nominee for the Virginia 4th Congressional district.
