About the New Florida Majority Education Fund
The New Florida Majority Educational Fund (NewFM-EF) is the non-partisan, nonprofit, educational 501c(3) arm of the New Florida Majority (NewFM), a leading voice for racial justice and expanding democracy in Florida.
NewFM was founded in 2009 as a voter participation organization working to empower women, African-Americans, Latinos, new immigrant communities and young people to fully participate in the political process toward an inclusive, fair, and vibrant democracy. Created in 2012, NewFM-EF’s educational efforts help empower residents to organize in their own neighborhoods in order to ensure equity and fairness in the Sunshine State.
We believe in a participatory democracy where people can be their whole selves. We train grassroots citizens to be leaders, mobilize communities to vote, educate the public to share our values, and inspire Floridians to take action toward their dreams. Through deep partnerships with organizations, leaders, and networks we achieve concrete results in our daily lives. We organize people, ideas, and resources to build a powerful new vision for Florida’s new majority.
At the cornerstone of our commitment to democracy is defending and restoring the voting rights of all citizens, including those who are new to the country, raising children on their own, struggling to make a living, or returning from incarceration. We believe that a strong democracy for all makes a better Florida for everyone.
Our c3 work across several issue areas and campaigns can be broken into three key areas.
