Through our partner alliances and ambassadors, our community grows. Our members tell us that BigTent has connected them to a personal and relatable community and they are ready to make a difference. 

“I feel like you guys have tapped into what we are all feeling. We want to help but don't really know where to start. I particularly like that everyone seems comfortable asking questions and it is reassuring to find that our questions are so similar. The fact that it isn't super "polished" and you all are very honest about what you know and don't know makes it less intimidating. I also like that you have actionable things like the letter writing and phone banking. Thank you!”
"I was so excited by Georgia yesterday AM. A real sugar high! Every vote counted, huge credit to Big Tent and your persistence in encouraging neophytes like me to write, text and feel a modest part of this historic moment."
"Thanks again for your energy and enthusiasm - what an amazing group of women making a difference.”
“You’ve done a truly great thing introducing Stacey Abrams and Lauren Groh-Wargo. I am pleased to have been able to support Fair Fight. Big Tent has impressed me and I’m proud to be able to play a small part in your efforts.”
“BigTent ladies, congratulations to you👏🏻... You did a fabulous job of keeping people organized, hosting speakers and keeping the Faith... Just like Joe said to do!👍🏼😍. So much good to look forward to😊🇺🇸🇺🇸”
“Well done! Thanks for inspiring, educating, guiding, corralling and empowering all of us so that together we could make our voices heard loud and clear! Onward!”
“First of all, congratulations!!!! Second, thank you for organizing all of those wonderful and informative programs. Your work helped inspire me to volunteer for the Democratic Party Voter Assistance Hotline for the past two months, to canvass in Pennsylvania's Bucks County, and to be a poll worker. Through this work, I spoke to so many motivated voters who shared our concern about our country. I definitely did not want any regrets in November, and I'm so glad that I do not.”
“I just wanted to send you a big pat on the back for all of the interesting speakers you get to your Big Tent events! I am so glad I joined up."
"Last week's BigTent's presentation: terrific facilitation, questions were clarified, useful to all participants. And I appreciated how you finished the hour with clear advocacy opportunities. I hope BigTent continues continues this role often!"
