Center for Community Change

In Brief:

Strengthens, connects, and mobilizes grassroots organizations to enhance their leadership, voice, and power. CCC builds the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to change their communities and public policies for the better. CCC plays a critical role spreading messages and organizing communities around them, helping to ensure that key progressive constituencies are empowered to speak and act on their own behalf.

Only social movements can create social change.

That’s why Center for Community Change, and its sister, Center for Community Change Action, work to build social movements.

The Center’s mission is to build the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to change their communities and public policies for the better.

Right now, the Center is empowering the people most affected by injustice to lead movements to improve the policies that affect their lives.

Focus areas include jobs and wages, immigration, retirement security, affordable housing, racial justice and barriers to employment for formerly incarcerated individuals.

The Resistance

Long committed to building power and capacity for low-income people, especially low income people of color, to change their communities and public policies for the better, Center for Community Chance has, since the 2016 Election, focused on movement building on the path to economic justice, racial equity, and immigrant rights. The objective is to achieve bold, structural change in light of the disruptive forces that are reshaping the world. Its focus areas include jobs and wages, immigration, retirement security, affordable housing, racial justice, and barriers to employment for formerly incarcerated individuals as well as civic engagement.
