The Frontline is an alliance of the Working Families Party and the Movement for Black Lives Electoral Justice Project.
In September 2020 founders of the coalition The Frontline were Ash-Lee Henderson, (Movement for Black Lives), Maurice Moe Mitchell (Working Families Party and (Movement for Black Lives), Patrisse Cullors (Black Lives Matter), Brittany DeBarros (About Face: Veterans Against the War), Nelini Stamp, Morathi Adams (Movement for Black Lives), Greisa Martinez Rosas , United We Dream Action, Cindy Wiesner,  While existing organizations continue their legacy of voter education and empowerment, new collaborations are being born.
“Every four years there’s a chorus of voices that says ‘this is the most important election of our lifetime,’” states Maurice Moe Mitchell the national director for the Working Families Party. “This year I am one of those voices. Things are bad now, and they can get worse. But that doesn’t have to be where our story ends. In the midst of an unprecedented crisis, there is much we can be hopeful and driven by.”
The Working Families Party — which identifies itself as a “progressive grassroots political party” with chapters in 15 states nationwide — is now part of a new movement christened The Frontline. Launched in September, The Frontline is a collaboration between several groups, including immigrant rights group Movement for Black Lives Electoral Justice Project and the United We Dream Action. It’s a collaboration that centers the myriad experiences of people of color, uniting them toward one clear cause.
The movement’s goals are short and succinct: Mission one is to defeat Trump in a landslide, to make it harder for him to refuse to step down between the election and inauguration. Step two is to push candidates Biden and Kamala Harris’ policies further left.
“We must seize the opportunity in the first hundred days to lift up the demands our movements have been fighting for decades,” Frontline volunteer Cindy Wiesner recently told Green New Deal. “We have an opportunity to make the BREATHE Act real. We have the capacity to pass a Green New Deal, to continue to push for a real People’s Bailout, not a corporate bailout.”
The energy, organizers believe, is already there. The Black-led uprisings around the country in response to police violence has activated a community that is desperate for change. Black and Brown communities, meanwhile, are the ones Trump is working hardest to discredit and exclude through voter suppression and criminalization.
“Our lives and the lives of the people that we love depend on us fighting with everything we’ve got to overthrow the Trumpism, the white supremacy, the white nationalism — all the harm that is being done by this administration to our communities,” says Ash-Lee Henderson of the Movement for Black Lives Electoral Justice Project. “We are committed, not to fighting for a savior on Pennsylvania Avenue, but to fighting for our next target. And we will come as hard at the new administration that we hope will follow the Trump administration as we are at Trump right now.”
