Increase civic engagement of parents by paying for childcare.

Politisit addresses financial barriers to civic engagement for parents and other caretakers of minors. In order to ensure institutions and government entities are serving our communities well, we need families to engage in community meetings, civic activities, and legislative discourse.

Impactful, sustained civic engagement is difficult while raising children because of time constraints and cost. To eliminate the cost barrier, Politisit pays for the caregiver's childcare costs while they are at a civic meeting or activity. This reimbursement plan creates access and influence for parents and caregivers in our communities.
