CONNECTING VOLUNTEERS AND ORGANIZERS

Founded by the activists behind So Cal Blue, a progressive grass roots organizer in Southern California, Forward California channels small donations (we take no money from corporate PACs) into the emerging grass roots infrastructure.

Community Based Organizing

Since early 2017, SoCal Blue has played a key role in nurturing coalitions of southland volunteers who worked to register and turn out thousands of voters. The Action Council model pioneered by SoCal Blue has inspired other coalitions throughout the nation. It works long-term because it represents organizing in the context of community, rather than in the context of campaigns.

Community based organizing has produced record high turnout, which has in turn  swept into power a wave of fresh faces who represent ordinary Americans of every social and economic stripe, not just a privileged few.
