Forward is an ideologically diverse group of thinkers from the left, right, and center of our politics, brought together first and foremost by our shared desire to move forward. We believe that a problem-solving mindset, that welcomes different viewpoints and encourages robust discourse, is our greatest tool in facing the complex problems of today, and those of tomorrow.

Yes, individual Forward candidates will bring their own values and ideas - as well as the unique values and ideas of their constituents - to the table. But it is through these varied perspectives that we look to work together, constructively and productively, towards the common-ground priorities that we share. We want to act as an incubator for dynamic political thinkers, that combines the potential for free expression that comes with running unaffiliated, with the network and resources offered by having a political party.
