Dwayne Marshall currently serves as the Founder of The Hope Institute. The mission of The Hope Institute is to serve as a catalyst for social justice and civic engagement through youth empowerment, engaged citizenship and leadership development. The Hope Institute is currently developing a public policy training curriculum to educate youth in Georgia on the leading social issues that adversely affect their lives and communities. The goal is to empower Georgia’s youth by providing them with the education and training for them to become citizens that can make a difference in the future direction of their communities and inspire them to potentially pursue careers in public service. Prior to establishing The Hope Institute, Dwayne served as a Regional Field Director & GOTV Lead for the Obama-Biden Campaign for Change in Georgia during the 2008 presidential election. In this role, Mr. Marshall oversaw the field operations for Fulton County and played a vital role in the largest voter registration drive in Georgia history. The Campaign for Change in Georgia would produce the largest total of new voter registrations of any state (over 215,000) during the 2008 general election period due to the hard work of a dedicated team of campaign staffers such as Dwayne Marshall and a fiercely committed group of volunteers. These efforts contributed to the nearly 2 million votes cast for Barack Obama in Georgia on November 4, 2008. As a result of his dedication and involvement with the Campaign for Change, Mr. Marshall was featured in a documentary entitled “Movement of the People” which profiles the Obama- Biden campaign experience in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to the Hope Institute, Dwayne is currently involved with other organizations that promote social justice, community empowerment and youth education.
