WHO WE ARE
Using the restoration and expansion of the Forest Theater, Forest Forward works to ignite a just, healthy and thriving South Dallas.
Our sights are set on the future.
The revitalized Forest Theater will focus on respecting, uplifting, and cultivating the Black community through collaboration. South Dallas residents will get to utilize the theater as a multi-purpose destination hub that sits at the heart of South Dallas as a hub for creativity, business, and entertainment.
Our leaders are agents of change that share a commitment to break the cycle of generational poverty and racism rooted in the South Dallas community by providing necessary tools and educational resources to help the community thrive.
