What We Believe

Florida is changing demographically and politically, and NewFM is poised to be the democratic engine that helps move the Sunshine State onto the path of equity and justice for all people and not just a small band of well-connected elites.

NewFM works daily to create an inclusive multiracial, multilingual and multicultural movement that seeks to unite people across economic, racial, religious and gender lines through a shared love of a democracy that serves all.

Our Strategies

We aim to center federal, state and local legislative conversations and policies around those who have been historically kept at the margins, disengaged with civic institutions and convinced that their participation doesn’t matter. Our work falls under three key umbrellas.

In 2018, our organizers are mobilizing to significantly expand democratic rights for communities that have been historically marginalized, excluded and silenced. The key components of the campaign are voting rights, immigration reform, fighting mass incarceration and standing up for women and our young people.

Our Victories

Through street-level organizing, NewFM is overcoming the dark days of racism and divisiveness in the Sunshine State to bring the new light of fairness and equity to all residents. Some of our 2017 highlights include:
