    hoped vs are hoped

    While many nineteenth-century reformers hoped to bring about reform through education or by eliminating specific social evils, some thinkers wanted to start over and remake society by founding ideal, cooperative communities.

    I think that we need use "are hoped" instead of "hoped" in above sentence because it has passive meaning?
    Is this right?

    No. It's active. The reformers hoped to do something.
