The Massachusetts Voter Table (MVT) was formed in 2011 to build power among the “New American Majority” – people of color, working-class communities, young people, and new citizens.

As a coalition of community organizations, we increase civic engagement in communities of color, low-income people, and youth to fight for resources and representation of the New American Majority in Massachusetts.

Core Principles

MVT is committed to a long-term organizing strategy that advances our vision of a more equitable and sustainable society. Our core principles are:

1) Build capacity and leadership of our partner organizations.


2) Increase voter participation to build power in our communities.


3) Move a collective and power-building long-term agenda to win on issues that advance racial and economic justice.

To advance the above principles, MVT:

  • Supports our partners to win issue-based campaigns and build the power of their constituents by building their capacity for year-round integrated civic engagement and use of data and targeting - utilizing the Voter Activation Network

  • Coordinates voter education, engagement and mobilization among partners to increase voter participation rates in our communities

  • Brings together MVT partners in analysis and decision-making around statewide campaigns that will advance our collective, long-term agenda for change

Together, from 2011 to 2018 we’ve reached out to nearly 1 million voters in gateway cities and Boston. We have trained over 1,000 grassroots leaders and have influenced all levels of government, from municipal to federal. MVT partners made collective decisions on participating and supporting key local and statewide campaigns, such as the Community Preservation Act, the Fight for $15, and Automatic Voter Registration.

MVT is the Massachusetts state table in the State Voices national network.
