Empowering people to take action can change culture.

We inspire with culturally relevant content that captures attention and sparks action.


We educate by giving people direct access to information, tools and resources on issues that affect them.


We activate people to organize their communities by supplying toolkits, campaign materials and digital tools.


Civic Nation works in four key areas:

Education access, civic engagement, gender equality and social justice. Our team combines the power of policy experts, community organizers and creatives who have united together for greater action.

Change from the ground up.

Our initiatives are grassroots efforts, locally supported to make a national impact.

Engaged individuals and communities can change the world. Join us and help us turn great ideas into action.

Now let's change the world.

The Hope Incubator

Proceeds from the book West Wingers will help launch The Hope Incubator housed at Civic Nation. Inspired by President Obama’s call to service, as reflected by the diverse stories contained in the book, The Hope Incubator will identify individuals and small organizations who want to change the world for the better — and provide them with seed funding, access, coaching, and support to get to scale quickly.

Buy the book

Proceeds from the book will help fund our first round of seed funding for incubator members. But the more money we raise, the more ideas we will be able to incubate. Please donate to increase funding for ideas that will change the world!

Donate to the Incubator

Interested in joining the incubator? Applications for the first round of funding are open now and will be reviewed by a panel of West Wingers authors on a rolling basis. Inaugural incubator members will receive seed funding, access to operations infrastructure through Civic Nation, and mentoring from the West Wingers network.
