Be the Change, Inc. is a nonprofit that creates national issue based campaigns by organizing coalitions of non-profits, social entrepreneurs, policymakers, private sector and civic leaders, academics, and citizens. Vibrant coalitions, collaborative policymaking, bipartisan advocacy, and galvanizing events and online outreach are hallmarks of Be the Change, Inc. campaigns.
Their combined grasstops and grassroots approach engages well-known voices in entertainment, retail, government, and philanthropy-and, through their megaphones, Americans of all ages and backgrounds.
ServiceNation, the first campaign launched from Be the Change, Inc.’s platform with over 270 organizations in its coalition, helped to achieve the strongly bi-partisan Kennedy Serve America Act — the greatest expansion of national service in our country in 60 years. ServiceNation also helped to inspire new service commitments from the entertainment industry, Mayors through Cities of Service, and a breakthrough partnership between the military and civilian service communities called Mission Serve.
OpportunityNation, their second campaign, launching in 2011, will promote thoughtful, practical and bi-partisan solutions to increase opportunity and economic mobility in America.
