Mission Statement:  

Community Frontline’s mission is to mobilize men to enter into and alleviate the suffering in their communities, beginning with East Fort Worth.

What is Community Frontline?

  • A brotherhood

    • Community Frontline is a brotherhood of men who love Fort Worth and who are committed to addressing and solving the problems that cause suffering to the beloved residents of the community.

    • Community Frontline is made up of various “units.” Each unit corresponds to a particular area of service, such as education and health and criminal justice.  To learn more about our units, click here.

    • If you are a man wishing to be part of the brotherhood, all you have to do is commit to serving in a “unit” and participating in the monthly forum.  To learn more about our monthly forum, click here.

  • A network

    • Community Frontline is a network of individuals who care about Fort Worth.  Community Frontline aims to connect people who are already serving in Forth Worth (and who could use some help!) with people looking to get involved (and who don’t know how to help!).

    • If you cannot be a part of the brotherhood, then consider being part of the network.  Let Community Frontline be part of your support system.  We’re here to unite and serve–not to compete.

  • A monthly forum

    • “We ’bout that action!”  And the primary way we operate as a brotherhood is through our units.  (Click here to read more about our units.)  But we also host a monthly forum, open to all men, at which we have a speaker and a time for Q&A and a few laughs.  (Click here to see a list of our past speakers.)  The goals of our forums are to unify, educate, and innovate.   To learn more, click here.

Had the chance to sit in a community forum tonight of 50+ men of all colors and races to discuss racial reconciliation and community development in the city of Fort Worth. The night was eye opening and inspiring as I sat and listened to people who look different than me, grew up with different socioeconomic backgrounds than me, and want the same things that I want. I listened to black brothers describe actual fear for their children, and heard stories of prejudice that I'll never experience. I heard from a black Fort Worth police officer that gave insight to his side of the story, media sensationalism, and what it's like to wrestle with criminals holding loaded weapons. We brainstormed holes and gaps in the community, and are forming teams to work on taking action. Discussion was heated at moments, emotional at times, and humbling throughout the evening. As a white, 27 year old man I still have dozens of questions about what it looks like to respond to last week's events, but am ridiculously thankful to have been a part of tonight's discussion. I am miles and miles from having anything figured out, but can't express enough how much I would advise finding an avenue to sit down with people who look differently than you, and listening.

I am extremely empowered by what these men of Community Frontline are doing in their community. They are an amazing group of men taking a BOLD stand against Domestic Violence and committing to actively take a public stand. They also provide resources for employment, male empowerment just to name a few of their efforts. I am extremely honored to be invited to be apart and I look forward to assisting their efforts of educating their communities and making a change. Domestic Violence is a Man's issue and I am truly appreciative of these men taking leadership role to attack the issue.

LaTasha Jackson-McDougle, Cheryl's Voice

Thx for this. Something I've learned is that some of my former attitudes/beliefs lent to me being disrespectful and even abusive in ways in the past. This is a huge problem. It needs to be brought into discussions and into the light. We need to get away from our preconceived notions as 'men' and value each other as humans that deserve our utmost respect and love, always. Even in the face of fear.

It was an honor to sit and listen to LaTasha's story and I am inspired by how she has turned her broken story into one of healing, awareness, and empowerment.

Tonight i was blessed to cater for a group of men and a young lady(guest speaker) that is all about making a difference in not just one community but all. Thank you Dante Williams and Community Frontline, for letting me be a service to you, it was a privilege. Keep up the good work that you and the guys are doing.
