About Us

2020 redefined what it means to reckon with our past, advocate for better in our present and expand the possibilities for our future. In this historic moment, progressives have the opportunity to focus public attention on creating a country where everyone is safe and free, with a care system and economy that works for all of us. 

But we must also contend with the race-baiting and fear mongering of the right. The powerful few seek to hold onto power by distracting and dividing us based on what we look like or where we come from. It’s up to us to combat the cynicism and despair that undermines desire for sustained participation from our progressive base, and cut through the sense of inevitability our opposition has built that the way things are now reflects how they will always be.

We Make the Future (WMTF) is a new organization forging a multi-state, multi-racial movement to win elections and push for a progressive governing agenda at the local, state and national level. Building off the work of Race Class Narrative Action (RCNA) from 2018-2020, We Make the Future partners with groups across labor, faith, philanthropy, advocacy and organizing around the country to advance a race forward, economic populist narrative and organizing strategy. 

By using the Race Class Narrative (RCN) messaging framework, WMTF aims to create a necessary offense against dog-whistle politics, empowering and equipping progressive leaders to energize our core base while inoculating and engaging persuadable voters.
