the Common Good is an affiliate of the
Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF),
the nation’s oldest and largest leadership development and organizing network. The IAF bases its work on the idea that a
healthy democracy requires the active participation of ordinary people. Nevadans for the Common Good is a broad-based
network of local institutions-- faith-based, non-profit, educational, labor, and civic organizations-- that come together
to develop leaders, identify shared issues affecting our communities, and take action around these issues. Member institutions
pay dues to ensure that NCG has a secure and independent core budget and is primarily accountable to its own constituents.
Nevadans for the Common Good is strictly non-partisan and is multi-issue. Our member institutions work together to develop our local agendas by engaging constituents, both within and across our institutions, in conversations about the issues affecting their families, neighborhoods and communities. By joining with other institutions that have similar goals and concerns, NCG members increase their collective power and work to achieve victories on local and regional issues.
