MovementForward, Inc. is a modern, inclusive social change organization working to protect, promote, and advance the civil and human rights of all people.
We are building a multiracial, multifaceted, and intergenerational movement for social justice, economic parity, educational equity, racial reconciliation, and global peace by bringing diverse people together to solve problems in innovative, inclusive, and solution-driven ways.
Founded in 2015 by emerging faith leaders in Atlanta, MFI provides this generation of Americans a conciliatory voice to offer programs, projects, activism, empowerment opportunities, and targeted issue campaigns to advocate for one standard of justice regardless of race, class, gender, religion, orientation, or immigration status.
Positive Change Requires Movement in a Forward Direction
Our mission is to finish the work of building the "Beloved Community" envisioned by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by providing innovative, inclusive, and solution-focused advocacy via another generation of change agents who are committed to the peaceful, nonviolent tradition of social activism. MFI’s goal is to engage people of every race, class, professional sector, and ideology in the continuing struggle for social justice, peace, and equality.
“This organization is taking the important work of the Civil Rights Movement and moving it forward. Forward into new generations and dimensions. Forward into a technological and digital age. Forward into shared ownership by all segments of society. Forward out of traditional optics, descriptions, definitions and divisions that thwart cohesiveness around people’s shared values. Forward into an era where executives and students and celebrities and everyday citizens alike will all view themselves as advocates for positive social change.”
Rev. Markel Hutchins - President & Chief Executive Officer
