The Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice is a hub for social good and the courageous people who devote their lives to achieving it. The landmark building features 81,000 square feet of convening space for the social sector, and a lush atrium garden and social justice art gallery open to the public.
We believe in the inherent dignity of all people. But around the world, too many people are excluded from the political, economic, and social institutions that shape their lives.
In addressing this reality, we are guided by a vision of social justice—a world in which all individuals, communities, and peoples work toward the protection and full expression of their human rights; are active participants in the decisions that affect them; share equitably in the knowledge, wealth, and resources of society; and are free to achieve their full potential.
Across eight decades, our mission has been to reduce poverty and injustice, strengthen democratic values, promote international cooperation, and advance human achievement.
