Civic Engagement

True North’s goal is voter engagement and education, which will result in the placement of political power in the hands of grassroots communities, as well as strong accountability for our local elected officials.

We’re asking our community to become civically engaged at the local level, and to put the people we love and the issues we care about in the center of the political discussion. We’re calling on the community and its leaders in Del Norte and Tribal Lands to make a choice to lift up the human dignity of everyone here. Social, economic, and environmental equity cannot be achieved unless we look at each other with love, and see all as human and deserving of dignity. With this perspective, we can make waves on the political front, and hold our civic leaders accountable for improving the lives of the people in Del Norte and Tribal Lands. When individuals have a confident voice in their political systems, we can to vote in our own self interest for policies and representatives that will work to improve our community's health.

True North is a nonpartisan, registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We're not aligned explicitly or implicitly with any candidate or party and are solely working to promote civic participation with voter registration and education.
