Color Of Change helps you do something real about injustice.

We design campaigns powerful enough to end practices that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward. Until justice is real.
  • Tell Cable News: Stop Ignoring Puerto Rico

    The media has decided the climate catastrophe in Puerto Rico is hardly worth covering. Environmental crises in low-income Black and Latinx communities are often downplayed or overlooked by TV news. But people are going through so much. Demand cable news give the crisis in Puerto Rico full credible coverage.
  • Reproductive Healthcare Over Incarceration

    In Oklahoma, pregnant women are facing felony charges for using prescribed medical marijuana during pregnancy. Even though their babies are born healthy, they're facing possible life sentences. Black, Brown, and poor women bear the brunt of this criminalization.
  • Don't White-Wash Black History!

    Demand publishers like McGraw Hill commit to never erase Black history from their learning materials! In March, Florida passed a bill to censor conversations about slavery, racism, and oppression. Then the Dpmt of Ed rejected math textbooks with ethnically diverse names and facts about Black mathematicians. Our children deserve better!
  • Ask Your Rep to Pass the Martha Wright Prison Justice Act

    Incarcerated people and their loved ones deserve to stay connected. But prison telecom companies charge as much as $1 a minute for calls, exploiting Black families. The Martha Wright Act would regulate how much prisons and jails can charge for calls home. Fax your rep through our site.
  • Facebook, Do Better!

    A Tech Transparency Project report shows Facebook is aiding the growth of hate groups on its platform, and may be helping white supremacists identify targets for violence. Let's make Facebook end paid ads for hate groups; ban groups on their “Dangerous Organizations” list; and have Mark Zuckerberg meet with racial justice leaders.
  • Demand Justice For Jayland Walker

    More than 1,000 people have been killed by police this past year. The latest is Jayland Walker, a 25-year-old Black man brutally executed by police in Akron, Ohio. He was shot 60x during a routine traffic stop. Help us as we join Jayland's family in demanding accountability for his senseless death.

Biden Grants Clemency to 70 People on Home Confinement

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve fought to get incarcerated people who pose no risk to their communities but could fall deathly ill with COVID sent home. On April 26, 2022, nearly 150,000 Color Of Change members helped convince President Biden to free 70 people on home confinement. That means they can live independently, pursue their dreams, spend time with friends and family without electronic monitors or other dehumanizing conditions of confinement. It is historic for a president to grant so many clemencies in their first term. But thousands more people deserve to be free – and risk being sent back due to minor technicalities or bureaucratic errors. People on home confinement have had to turn down jobs or miss funerals because they’re outside of the range they’re allowed to travel. Biden promised he'd end mass incarceration and cut the prison population in half. Help us hold him to that.

Two Anti-Protest Bills Defeated in Wisconsin

More than 100 dangerous anti-protest bills have circulated this country since the uprisings for racial justice two summers ago. Some of these egregious bills would make it easier to punish and criminalize protestors, cutting them off from public benefits. Others would grant immunity to people who are violent towards protestors, and do things like ram their cars into crowds. With your help, we beat back two anti-democracy bills in Wisconsin, convincing the governor to veto them. But there’s dozen of others making their way around state legislatures. That’s why Color Of Change is pressing the Department of Justice to condemn these laws and assert your right to stand up for what’s right. These bills are meant to scare people out of protesting, and encourage the type of vigilante violence we saw from Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha. We can’t let them pass.

Kendrick Fulton Is Now Free!

Thanks to more than 35,000 Color Of Change members who spoke up, Kendrick Fulton has been released from jail. But he needs clemency to stay out. Kendrick was on home confinement when he temporarily lost his housing. After two years reconnecting with his children, getting a promotion at work, going to church, and giving back, his progress was suddenly pulled away. We are thrilled Kendrick is free now and will keep fighting for the thousands of people on home confinement and living under the threat of being sent back on minor, cruel technicalities. Everyone on home confinement has already been heavily vetted for a safe release. President Biden has the power to grant them clemency and turn the cycle of incarceration around. And what we’ve witnessed during pandemic is that people always do better at home, surrounded by community.

Obama’s Message to Tech Companies on Misinformation Reform: ‘You’ll Still Make Money, but You’ll Feel Better’

Former President Barack Obama gave a historic speech on the challenges to democracy by misinformation on the Internet at Stanford University. He said regulators and the public need more transparency around how the ranking systems and algorithms at large tech companies worked, and that financial incentives are still too strongly weighted towards profit above everything else. “On an issue of enormous importance there has been little public debate and practically no government oversight,” Obama said. Panelist Rashad Robinson, president of Color Of Change, agreed especially when it comes to the grip that companies like Facebook and Twitter over the public discourse. He is quoted, “It’s not that rich people have influence over the public square. It’s that they own the public square.”

Ketanji Brown Jackson Is Now a Supreme Court Justice—And Progressives Are Thrilled

Millions cheered as Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson became the first Black woman and first public defender to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. Her confirmation was hailed by Rashad Robinson, president of Color of Change. “Her perspective as a public defender has long been missing from the court as has her real-world experience addressing racial injustices in sentencing. We must redouble our commitment to redefining the role of judges and prosecutors—to ensure they serve the people rather than corrupt interests and they end racial injustice rather than exacerbating it.” He added, “We must also remember that Black activism—and Black voters—brought us to this long-awaited moment. They made President Biden promise to appoint a Black woman to the Supreme Court, and they made him keep that promise.”

Black Women Are More Severely Affected by Alopecia—and More Likely to Have It

Alopecia is getting growing recognition following the now infamous Academy Awards where Will Smith went onstage and slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife’s baldness. One type, called “hot comb alopecia,” mostly affects Black women and is a result over-manipulating one’s hair, often to look the part at work and get promoted in corporate America. Color Of Change’s Vice President Arisha Hatch is quoted on how hair discrimination and standards that judge women who wear their hair naturally have got to go. “Every day, Black folks suffering from alopecia and baldness are being robbed of employment opportunities, education, and dignity because employers and institutions can cloak their racism in dress code policies and vague concepts like ‘professionalism’ that were designed to shut us out.” That’s why Color Of Change is working to pass the CROWN Act.

How Jackson Will Sharpen the Supreme Court’s Core Conflict

The Supreme Court recently accepted two cases to review and potentially restrict affirmative action at colleges and universities. Precisely as young people of color will become most of the nation’s high school graduates, the court’s conservative majority may hobble efforts to increase their representation in elite higher education institutions. With the appointment of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Court, the demographic divisions between the two blocs on the court will more closely resemble the divide between the groups of Americans likely to gain, and lose, from the court’s rulings. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson remarks, “We will have this very clear visual of a group of white people trying to rip away rights from Black and Brown people while sitting across from Black and Brown people with more qualifications than them. It will be the kind of images we have seen in our civil rights movies and books,” he says, adding it’s the same history they’re trying to ban through laws restricting how school teachers can discuss racial discrimination.

The Emmett Till Act Makes Lynching a Federal Hate Crime

Racial justice leaders lauded this week’s passage of long overdue legislation making lynching a federal hate crime. But more needs to be done on issues that continue to plague Black and Brown neighborhoods from police brutality to attacks on voting rights. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted, “It’s important to ensure that we put this legislation in place and that it’s enforced. At the same time, it’s important that we continue to work to deal with all the ways that anti-Black racism shows up, from police violence to the ways in which our votes and ability to express ourselves in a democracy are being stolen…. Lynching wasn’t just a tool of violence. It was a tool of terror to suppress our will and our ability to engage.” Southern Democrats repeatedly used the filibuster, for example, to thwart anti-lynching legislation and many opportunities for progress.

The Senate has Confirmed Judge Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court

The Senate made history today when it confirmed Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. After 233 years, she is the first Black woman to ever serve on the nation’s highest court. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted, “We have to remember that Black activism and Black voters did brought us this long-awaited moment. We demanded representation and not just in gender and race but in perspective, values and experience.” He says Jackson raises the bar for what voters should expect from the court, and her confirmation process is an indication of how he thinks Republicans will speak about Black and Brown people in the midterm elections.
