Lever for Change Stronger Democracy Awardee

In the last decade, Accelerate Change has evolved from a scrappy incubator for new ventures to a full-fledged media lab that has helped develop some of the largest nonprofit media ventures in the country. We scale and invest in emergent and established cultural media properties, build influencer networks, run a digital media lab, and drive civic engagement campaigns.

The Stronger Democracy Award is a competition to identify bold solutions addressing systemic
barriers and advancing structural reforms in three key areas of U.S. democracy: Voting and elections, policymaking,
and civic engagement. The Award is managed by Lever for Change, a nonprofit affiliate of the John D. and Catherine
T. MacArthur Foundation that uses open and transparent competitions to help donors identify and fund high-impact
solutions for significant societal challenges.
