Work

As under-resourced public servants, state legislators need support every day of the year.

In many states, legislators are part-time, paid very little (if at all), and required to drop everything to be fully available for their legislative sessions.

State Innovation Exchange (SiX) exists to advance a bold people-centered policy vision in every state in this nation and to fill a gap in the progressive movement: helping legislators succeed after they are elected.
