For decades, conservatives have invested massive resources to cement power at the state level. SiX is closing the gap by equipping state legislators with the tools needed to shape effective policy and by bridging that work with unmatched grassroots organizing power of the progressive movement.

The State Innovation Exchange (SiX) is a national resource and strategy center that supports state legislators in advancing and defending progressive policies across the country. With a long-term vision of building progressive power and infrastructure at the state level, we have built a network of more than 1,500 elected officials who represent all 50 states.
