fresh voices from the front lines of change








OurFuture is a story-based project of People’s Action, a national network of grassroots groups. People’s Action has over a million members in thirty-two states committed to racial, gender and economic justice, putting people and planet first.

We elevate fresh voices from the front lines of change, sharing the perspectives of those directly affected by public policies. These are the voices we bring to the table, as we demand solutions. 

Since 2008, OurFuture and its daily newsletter, Progressive Breakfast, have been leading sources of nonprofit, progressive news and original opinion. It began its life in 1999 as the award-winning blog, founded by John Moyers, and was then run by Nick Penniman, later the executive director of the Huffington Post Investigative Fund. The site became a project of the Campaign for America’s Future (CAF) and Institute for America's Future in 2008,  which merged with People’s Action in 2016. CAF maintains its own website at
