Where did State Innovation Exchange come from?
Founded in late 2014, SiX is the result of an unprecedented merger of three organizations that combined forces to ensure state legislators are empowered with top-notch research, training, policy expertise, communications support, political strategy, and a space to network and share ideas.
What resources does SiX offer?
First and foremost, SiX works to ensure that state legislators have the support they need to advance and defend progressive policies on the issues that matter – from equal pay, climate change, and election reform to paid sick leave, wage theft prevention, and predatory lending. For additional information and resources on any of our core policy priorities, feel free to visit our issues section.
We also maintain a legislative library that allows you to search for and review exemplary legislation on a broad range of issues.
Each year, SiX holds an annual convening of hundreds of state legislators from across the nation, where we provide policy education, communications and other skill-based training, and opportunities for elected officials to connect with each other and share best practices. More information on our 2017 conference is available here.
We also conduct caucus visits and legislator trainings throughout the year, assist with bill tracking and other research requests, and regularly hold webinars and conference calls on a wide range of issues and policy developments. Recordings of several of those webinars and calls are available on SiX’s resources page.
