Our philosophy

we grow our power exponentially

about us

march on mobilizes the masses to create political power

Founded in 2017, March On is a 501 (c)4 organization focused on harnessing the grassroots energy of mass mobilizations to create political power. March On supports and resources hundreds of local affiliates and organizers nationwide, mobilizes our network for national campaigns, and partners with other progressive organizations on joint initiatives. Since our inception, we have fundamentally shifted the balance of power by moving millions in the streets and to the polls. To find more about our work, click here.

Founded by youth activists for youth activists, Future Coalition is a network and community for youth-led organizations and Gen Z and young millennial leaders from across the country that came into being as a project of March On in the fall of 2018. Future Coalition works collaboratively to provide young people with the resources, tools, and support they need to create the change they want to see in their communities and in this country.

March On has been incubating Future Coalition to allow it to grow and flourish without the impediments and weight of managing a formal organization, while also providing credibility and backing whenever necessary. While Future Coalition is autonomous and empowered to drive its own strategy, it resides within March On, which has been providing administrative infrastructure, technical resources, and professional staff to support Future Coalition.

March On and Future Coalition share core beliefs around the power of collaboration and community ––centering local, grassroots organizers to affect change.

March On is fiscally sponsored by March On Foundation, a 501 (c)3 organization.

how we work

We’re proud to work closely with some of the most trusted and organizations in our country. From ACLU to SEIU, from Feminist Majority to NRDC, our working relationships span the spectrum of the progressive movement at the national level. We’re also proud to remain true to our grassroots nature, and we have invested in major ways to provide ongoing support to local organizers, including young people. In 2018 and 2019, over 30% of our revenue was spent on direct local support. From critical financial support to toolkits, PR support, digital and graphic services, technical office hours and access to data — we provide what organizers need in the least bureaucratic way possible.

At both the national and local level, we work to create intersectional, intergenerational coalitions and build bridges to strengthen the movement, so that when we have work to do together – like achieving a historic turnout of the New American Majority in the 2020 elections – we do it effectively.

Over the last few years, we have built a rich, diverse and layered network of activists, organizers and engaged folks. We know that through our ability to reach people – whether it be through our digital channels, strategic and core partnerships, our coalition can mobilize at least 1 million people to ensure their voices are heard at the ballot box.

This is not about replacing a President.

This is about ushering in a new era, in which our shared values – justice, fairness, equity – are not only heard, but upheld by the people who represent us in government.
