Our Initiatives

In the interest of our mission of "Advanced Thinking & Meaningful Action", Forum280 strives to put programs into actions with each gathering that will have meaningful impacts and the ability to scale our efforts and those of our partners.


The Public Service Center

The Public Service Center will facilitate both academic and practical dialog and action that renews citizen engagement in our society's most pressing issues, bringing together those who are already public service innovators with new generations of citizens equally impassioned to make a difference.



Summit.Ahead. is a convening of the best and brightest policy entrepreneurs on how we can combine policies, technology, and human capital to create a path toward broad-based re-enfranchisement by using the tools of meaningful employment and opportunity for those who feel left out and left behind in the new economy.

Flashdrives for freedom

Forum280 partnered with the Human Rights Foundation to collect flashdrives for North Korean, refugee-led organizations as counter-propaganda devices.  Each year, these groups collectively smuggle fewer than 10,000 flashdrives into North Korea, which we have already surpassed through our efforts.



VoteCastr believes that providing information and analysis coming out of key battleground states to the American public throughout Election Day will connect the electorate to voting in a new and very powerful way.
