Promoting Real Reform
through Collective Action

Neighborhood FORWARD is a movement built by concerned citizens, faith leaders, civil rights activists, elected officials, business partners, and non-profit organizations throughout the country.

“Of course, laws will not eliminate prejudice from the hearts of human beings, but that is no reason to allow prejudice to continue to be enshrined in our laws, to perpetuate injustice through inaction.”

— Shirley Chisholm


REFORM: We support data-backed alternative solutions that help protect the Black and Brown communities. Neighborhood FORWARD wants a system that supports equality, oversight, accountability, reform, and restructuring. Encourage your elected officials to support these solutions to keep our neighborhoods moving forward.


REINVEST in communities of color throughout the United States that have endured decades of systematic racial and economic injustices. Decades that have created opportunity gaps for black and brown children, crumbling infrastructure, affordable housing shortages, high un/under employment, and concentrated pockets of poverty. Through targeted public/private partnerships and intentional investments in both place and people, revitalization becomes a reality for communities that have longed for a way forward.


REIMAGINE our communities as places where everyone is given a fair chance to achieve the “American Dream.” It is through the elimination of food deserts, expansion of economic opportunity, and development of sustainable communities that we can all thrive.
