Building Movement Project (REMOTE)

Overview

For nearly two decades, the Building Movement Project (BMP) (buildingmovement.org) has cultivated the potential for nonprofit organizations to effectively partner with 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 areas 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;
  • Movement Building: Acknowledging and building on the distinct role of nonprofit organizations in advancing movements for social change;
  • Service and Social Change: Developing the capacity of organizations to engage constituents in changing the systems that impact their lives.

 The Building Movement Project is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (tsne.org).
