How do we build a 21st century super movement? Innovate. Incubate. Experiment. Collaborate.
Gamechanger is a nimble and collaborative national effort to help increase the innovation capacity and relational infrastructure of the progressive movement. Gamechanger strengthens the innovation (“crazy ideas”) and collaboration (“crazy glue”) power of social movements to build the people power and political will for progressive change. It seeks to accelerate “tipping point” moments –where the right intervention at the right place and time can change history. Gamechanger runs two kinds of programs: Millennial programs focused on creative high-leverage community organizing and voter engagement (the base and new leadership for an upgraded 21st century movement). And multi-generational Innovation & Collaboration programs focused on new ideas, crisis moments, visionary opportunities, cross-movement collaboration, and the first few steps up the ladder of innovation.
About Our Grants
In 2019, the Woodcock Foundation awarded a $30,000 grant to Gamechanger Labs to support its efforts to capitalize on new momentum entering into the youth landscape to build-long lasting projects and organizations that have game-changing potential. Woodcock’s grant will support Movement Strategy Center’s 2019 Student Power Alliances convening, which will bring together state affiliates, emerging youth organizations, powerful youth, talented student organizers, and national partners for a multi-day gathering, creating a space for people to build community and share best practices across identities and geographies.
