At ReFrame, we envision national and international movements buoyed by hundreds of thousands of strategists who are collaborating to develop and advance deep narratives that bend the long arc of history toward justice.
We know that the work of shifting the big stories that shape not only what actions society takes, but what is even deemed possible, happens in fits and starts, and is more often than not, a generational project.
While the world around us seems to be burning with crisis after crisis, we are staying the course and developing the strategists and leaders we need.
Please join us in welcoming the fifth class of the ReFrame Mentorship. They come from amazing organizations from across the country who are advancing a vision of the world that we all want.
