Our Mission

Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Center for Civic Policy (CCP), a nonpartisan tax-exempt 501c3 organization, works to amplify the voices of New Mexicans in policy decisions that affect their lives and to hold NM officials accountable –achieving the kind of change that builds thriving New Mexico families.

To achieve this end, we compile cutting edge data and research with which we educate New Mexicans about vital issues – including but not limited to ethics and campaign finance reform, health care, tax and budget priorities, economic security, corporate accountability and the environment. In this way, we work to foster a broader, more inclusive, public discourse about the challenges facing our state’s diverse communities as well as our nation as a whole.

In collaboration with local and national partners, we work to increase voter participation and turnout, identifying and training new leaders for civic life.

The Center for Civic Policy is nationally recognized as an innovator in the civic engagement sector with a proven track record of developing effective strategies for connecting underrepresented communities to the public policy process and thereby leveraging change.
