Meet Andy

At the height of the Civil Rights Movement, 20-year-old Andrew Goodman joined the Freedom Summer Project of 1964 to register Black Americans to vote. On his first day in Mississippi, the Ku Klux Klan murdered Andy and two other civil rights workers, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner. Their murders catalyzed a movement to oppose white supremacy and voter suppression throughout the United States and led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Founded by his parents Robert and Carolyn Goodman to carry on his legacy, The Andrew Goodman Foundation’s mission is to make young voices and votes a powerful force in democracy by training young leaders, engaging high-potential voters, and challenging restrictive voter suppression laws.
