About March On/Future Coalition:

Recently merged, March On/Future Coalition (MOFC), a 501(c)(4) organization, is excited to bring on an Executive Director to help lead the next phase of their joint work and guide the organization’s long-term vision. 

 

Since the 2016 elections, March On set out to build political power by mobilizing and resourcing the grassroots. Initially founded in 2018 as March On’s youth-led arm, Future Coalition has supported and facilitated collaboration amongst leading youth-led organizing groups. 

 

In 2022, the two organizations merged in an effort to affirm the intersections and overlaps of their work operationally and programmatically. The unification has allowed them to refine the scope of the organization to focus on what they do best: provide the fiscal, operational, and communications support for sustained, decentralized movement building.

 

MO/FC also has two PACs, March On PAC and Future Democrats PAC. Established in 2020 and 2021 respectively, the PACs are 100% grassroots-funded and allow the organization to engage in the democratic process by supporting candidates and campaigns that reflect their values.

 

March On/Future Coalition/Future Coalition is headquartered in Denver, Colorado with remote offices in Los Angeles and New York City. The team is 100% remote.

 

March On/Future Coalition Mission:

March On/Future Coalition is an intergenerational organization dedicated to building and sustaining grassroots power. Their vision is rooted in principles of justice, equity and sustainability. They are committed to fearlessly changing the narrative and paradigm toward a society which reflects those principles.

 

They do so by building and strengthening the infrastructure of grassroots social movements, eliminating the barriers to organizing for community-based and youth leaders, and advancing broad and meaningful civic engagement and social justice through their campaigns, programs, and projects.
