Who We Are
Civic Engagement Beyond Voting, an Indivisible group, is a grassroots nonpartisan organization that works to empower Arizona’s citizens to exercise their voices at the local level. We formed just after the 2016 federal election that inspired so many people to action, and quickly coalesced around using the Request to Speak (RTS) system as the "gateway drug to activism." We offer trainings, speaker series, ballot guides, calls to action, and more, all focused on helping people make their voices heard on the issues that matter to them.
CEBV heavily promotes the use of the Request to Speak (RTS) system. We register Arizonans for RTS, train them on its use, and issue weekly calls to action.
CEBV is a force multiplier, collaborating with local and national groups to amplify our collective impact.
We provide citizens and groups with information that leads to direct action and positive change.
As part of our work with Indivisible, CEBV works to challenge Arizona’s status quo through local advocacy.
