National group founded 1968 and based in Washington, DC. Partners with grassroots organizations nationwide on economic justice, immigration and other issues.
Primary geographic focus: NATIONAL
Organization type(s): Research/Policy/Organizing
We focus on jobs and wages, immigration, retirement security, affordable housing, racial justice and barriers to employment for formerly incarcerated individuals.
Our overriding goal is constant: to empower low-income people, particularly in communities of color, to make change that improves their communities and the public policies that affect their lives.
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, we’re empowering the people most affected by injustice to lead movements to improve the policies that affect their lives.
Our focus areas include jobs and wages, immigration, retirement security, affordable housing, racial justice and barriers to employment for formerly incarcerated individuals.
