Many communities feel powerless and cut off from politics. Helping disengaged communities have their voices heard is central to our work. HOPE not hate is one of the leading organisations ensuring underrepresented and disenfranchised individuals and communities are engaged in the democratic process. That might be young people and students, or those living in private rented accommodation, who have been affected by rule changes to voter registration. It might be those from BAME, migrant and faith groups with lower than average voter engagement, or it might be white working class voters from "left behind" estates who have lost faith in local and national politics. HOPE not hate organises and mobilises those most in need of a voice.
