Charles DouglasNational Data Strategist, Forward Together
Charles Douglas joined Forward Together as the National Data Strategist in August 2018. Charles Douglas is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. After serving in the US Army as a senior interrogator, Charles Douglas moved to North Carolina to live with his mother as she battled cancer. His mother, always the strong believer in centering “the least of these” inspired him to engage deeper social change before her passing This lead him to work as field staff on a number of campaigns ranging from municipal races all the way up to presidential. Growing increasingly disillusioned with the failure of the political class to center his folx, Charles Douglas transferred his skills and experience to the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival where head lead civil disobedience and data management efforts focused on centering impacted and marginalized voices.
At Forward Together, Charles Douglas exists to ensure that as the profile and visibility of Forward Together continues to grow, that as an organization our ability to effectively target and uplift our folx grows as well.
