VPC Awarded Best Public Service in 2019

The Experimental Research organized section of the American Political Science Association recognizes VPC, under leadership of Page Gardner, for their commitment to public service.

Page Gardner is the founder and president of the Voter Participation Center (VPC), a research-driven, non-profit and non-partisan organization dedicated to increasing the political participation of unmarried women, people of color, young people, and other historically underrepresented groups in American democracy (formerly known as Women’s Voices Women Vote (WVWV) until 2012). Under her leadership, VPC has demonstrated a commitment to evidence-based policy, partnering with academics “to conduct and publish randomized field experiments that answer theoretically and practically important questions on voter registration and turnout.”
