Building power torealize The Dream

Our goal is to force America’s political system to address and eradicate our largest social problems.

To do so, we invest in the best organizing efforts in our most critical states. 

By making America’s most marginalized communities the determining factor in our nation’s most influential elections, we incentivize those seeking power to run on real solutions.

We invest inthe MLKs of today

We’ve worked with Democracy experts to identify the MLKs of today - community organizing leaders with a track record of success.

If we help them scale their work, they will ensure the most affected by the triple evils of poverty, racism, and violence are the nation’s most well-organized and influential voters.

"Power properly understood is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. It is the strength required to bring about social, political and economic change."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.


Our portfolio selection process is led by the Kings and a diverse team of leading democracy experts and investors. Our geographic focus has been carefully chosen and each grantee has been heavily vetted and selected for their effectiveness.
