We are a people-driven organization committed to serving progressive values and causes that are larger than ourselves. By working with local leaders and organizations, we will create permanent and lasting change all around us. Our mission is to mobilize and empower people and community organizations collectively mobilizing issue and electoral campaigns to advance our shared agenda – this is community organizing to win.
In 2016, a coalition of groups on the cutting edge of political action, including NextGen America, labor unions representing a cross-section of working families, and allied progressive organizations, came together to establish For Our Future to leverage their existing infrastructure to build lasting power in communities. For Our Future combines a proven concept: one-on-one conversations at the grassroots level produce permanent change – with the technical and tactical ability to mobilize voters in communities across the country.
For Our Future has built the new model of sustainable activism to produce change. We combine proven methods and emerging tactics into one model with a national impact:
- We build from the ground up. Local organizations identify key issues in their communities, and For Our Future provides infrastructure, technology, and training to organize and energize around them.
- We don’t leave when the election is over. We start in communities and stay in communities, creating the center of activism that builds power continuously.
- Our scale means we are heard. We layer personal contact with online media creating an echo chamber that drives messages, engages and organizes. Volume and repetition mean politicians in state capitols and the halls of Congress hear the needs of ordinary voters.
- Maximum Scale and Electoral Impact: For Our Future allocated its foundational investments to build and maximize electoral power over multiple elections across crucial battlegrounds
For Our Future built operations and is active in Florida, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Michigan. By working through its community partners, For Our Future maintains a continuous presence in all of these states. Each one is a crucial battleground where pivotal elections that decide the direction of our country will be fought at the local level.
