In the urban and suburban areas, these are where to find these voters. Apart from this political view, NGP VAN has promoted an inclusive gender view.
In offering a parental leave for fathers and mothers, recently on March 2018 NGP VAN organized a company day without a single woman. The day was part of the global movement held by the DC women’s as a way to act together for justice, and equity for all gender oppressed people in this day the primary activity was to offer charities.

Later after this, it has also had other client in massive campaigns like the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign and the same year the Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign.
