We worked together with JMI to build an online community around Ballpark Village

JMI Reality needed a platform to educate San Diegans about some of their upcoming developments.

The community is actively educated about their plans for a convention center ‘campus’, a sports stadium, and a brand new state-of-the-art mixed-use facility that will encompass three blocks of Downtown San Diego’s East Village neighborhood.

IVC created a custom brand, an informative website, online surveys, and social media channels that have become JMI’s most effective tool in educating and gathering feedback from the community.

“It has been a pleasure working with IVC. Their service and personal attention to detail has been extraordinary.  I would highly recommend them to anyone and look forward to working with them on future projects.”
- Dee Lawrence, Executive Assistant at JMI Realty

Bringing fairer energy rates to all californians.

Sempra and IVC create the Fix My Energy Bill coalition

Sempra Energy, and a coalition of supporters, needed to change the dialogue around energy rate reform.

Faced with a well-funded opposition that benefits from an outdated tiered rate structure, IVC helped create an online outlet to educate and activate California voters.

IVC has executed multiple successful campaigns using the Fix My Energy Bill platform, from promoting a petition that helped get a major piece of legislation passed to generating tens of thousands of leads for voter education efforts.

“The results from our work with IVC have been tremendous. I now understand that online technology and nonpartisan messaging can be extremely effective for public relations.”
- Mitch Mitchell, Government Affairs for Sempra Energy

transforming the community of rancho santa fe.

Electing candidates through education and voter registration

IVC helped increase voter registration from 50% to over 75% in less than 6 weeks.

Several members of the Rancho Santa Fe community came to IVC with a few problems: their Association was not being governed properly, voter registration was low, and community members were uninformed about significant issues.

In addition to increasing voter registration, IVC created educational websites that help distribute information to the community through various online outlets. IVC has also led the charge for a new community-owned fiber-optic infrastructure project that has received unanimous approval from the Board.

"The IVC team is highly responsive, comprehensive, and creative. I trusted them with running my campaign, and now their communications efforts allow me to be a more effective leader in our community.”
- Ann Boon, President of the Rancho Santa Fe Association Board

Independent Voter

Challenging the Institutions. From Every Direction.

We’ve Created a Demand for Nonpartisan Election Reform From the Ground Up

From website development, to accounting, to the management of a nationally recognized news outlet, IVC handles all the day-to-day operations for a host of nonpartisan organizations. 

IVN.us, for example, reaches 4.5 million people online per month, organically.

In the growing nonpartisan/independent world, IVC has established close relationships with various influential individuals and organizations at the state and national level. These relationships have helped IVC connect its clients with other partners and turned a California success story into a national strategy.

"IVC has been an integral part of our team. As our arms and legs, they often run faster and reach farther than we even thought possible. They have cut out the need for excessive overhead by taking the place of an executive staff. This allows us to spend resources on voters, instead of ourselves.”
- Dan Howle, co-Chair of the Independent Voter Project
