For over a decade, the Building Movement Project has been advancing the potential for nonprofit organizations to have an impact on building movements for progressive social change. We learn by listening to groups and leaders about what it takes for organizations to align their social justice principles with their operating practices. Our research and practical resources help organizations innovate to meet the needs of the communities they serve and face the challenges of the external environment. BMP concentrates on the following three main focus areas in order to accomplish our goals and advance social change:
- Leadership: Analyzing how organizations can do their best work, encourage diverse leaders at every level and promote the most effective and inclusive practices;
- Service and Social Change: Developing the capacity of organizations to engage constituents in changing the systems that impact them;
- Movement Building: Acknowledging and building on the distinct role of nonprofit organizations in advancing movements for social change.
