The Advancement Project is a next generation, multi-racial civil rights organization. Rooted in the great human rights struggles for equality and justice, they exist to fulfill America’s promise of a caring, inclusive and just democracy. They use innovative tools and strategies to strengthen social movements and achieve high impact policy change.
Locally, Advancement Project National Office provides direct, hands-on support for organized communities in their struggles for racial and social justice, providing legal, communications and campaign organizing resources for on-the-ground efforts, while assisting in building their own capacity and power in their communities. Their Florida grassroots partners include the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, the New Florida Majority, and Florida Immigrant Coalition.
Their recent report, “Democracy Disappeared: How Florida Silences the Black Vote through Felony Disenfranchisement” provides an unprecedented analysis of Black neighborhoods and Florida’s historic problem of felony disenfranchisement.
