THE SPARK OF INITIATIVE AND FLAME OF PROGRESS
Andrew “Andy” Goodman and two of his contemporaries were young adults committed to equality, voting rights and social justice – they died fighting for those very commitments during Freedom Summer 1964.
Established to continue Andy’s legacy, The Andrew Goodman Foundation (The AGF) inspires through a story that touches diverse Americans—Jews and Christians, young and old, blacks and whites—and empowers young people to fully participate in the Democratic process. Through the Vote Everywhere and Hidden Heroes programs, The AGF sets Millennials on the path toward civic engagement and greater political power. Join our journey to inspire more young people to pursue social change work, activate the important lessons of the past, and sustain today’s effective social action.
The Andrew Goodman Foundation’s programs and activities spark individuals to step forward and address injustice, connect to a community of like-minded peers and impact through collaboration. Our goal is to empower all individuals to take action to address systemic social issues such as poverty, educational access, economic opportunity, equality and social justice. Spark leadership, ignite heroism.
