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 DAs: Abortion Is Healthcare

    Now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, we'll see abortion bans in at least 26 states. Pregnant women's bodies will become sites for policing, but we can fight back. District Attorneys decide who gets charged with a crime. Tell yours to use their power to keep law enforcement out of health decisions.
  • Tell Cable Carriers to Drop Fox!

    AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon must stop amplifying the racist "replacement theory" that inspired the murder of 10 Black people in Buffalo. Nearly half of right-wing voters now believe it thanks to Fox News' Tucker Carlson, who sends racist lies into millions of homes each night, inspiring violence against our communities.
  • Stand with Tracy!

    Tracy McCarter is a Black mother and nurse from New York facing criminal charges for the death of her estranged husband. When he drunkenly attacked her, Tracy fought back. Though she called the police and gave him first aid 'til paramedics arrived, she was arrested and jailed at Rikers for 7 months. Let's get the DA to drop the charges.

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.

Black Women Hail New Law Banning Discrimination Against Natural Hair

For decades, hair has affected how Black women are treated at work and in corporate America, as Black women regularly report being discriminated against for afros, braids, Bantu knots, and locs. Color Of Change’s Jade Magnus Ogunnaike started focusing on schools when she learned students were being punished for wearing natural hair. Then she targeted massive corporations . “Companies that ran franchises said that it was up to the franchise owners to decide on hair policies. These companies, like Walmart and McDonald’s, want to advertise to Black consumers but won’t create protections for Black employees.” She added, “Black women have spent millions of dollars and time over centuries trying to conceal our natural hair, giving into anti-Black agencies.”

Democrats’ Defense of Ketanji Brown Jackson Leaves Some Wanting More

As Judge Jackson solidifies her bid to become the first Black woman on the Supreme Court, Democrats are still debating how to talk about race in America. It’s a subject many would rather avoid—given their response to Jackson’s rough treatment during her confirmation hearings. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted, “When issues of race come up, Democrats get scared.” He said President Biden and Senate Democrats should have condemned Republicans’ racist attacks against Jackson. “The White House has to engage on these fights. Republicans will weaponize race and racism to achieve their goals, but Democrats don’t elevate racial justice.”

Want to Understand the Red-State Onslaught?

Alarmingly restrictive laws continue to proliferate as the red-state rollback on civil rights enters a new phase, symbolized by Florida’s passage of the “Don’t Say ‘Gay’” bill. The Biden administration is leaning into the fight, but business leaders are retreating. Prominent companies that tout diversity and inclusion–like Disney–have stood aside as laws that restrict voting access, curtail abortion and LGBTQ rights, and limit teachers discussing social issues in schools advance. COC President Rashad Robinson is quoted, saying the willingness of companies to stand up to restrictive voting bills or efforts to ban discussing race in school is “absolutely abysmal. They are not willing to put their hand on the scale to stop the removal of Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks from our public schools.” Big companies want to go only so far in fighting these proposals, because they prefer Republicans to control state governments and deliver the low-tax, light-regulation policies.

Racial Justice Activists Say Biden’s State of the Union Address Missed the Mark

In President Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress, in 2021, he pledged to root out systemic racism and to advance efforts to create a more equitable country. But this time he didn’t say the words “race” or “Black” once. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted, “You can’t say that it’s time for America to come together on race by ignoring race. Racial justice is not charity. It’s not the thing a president should do to be nice to Black and Brown folks. Racial justice is strategy. And the quicker the White House recognize the strategic power of engaging on racial justice to motivate, engage, and deliver to the communities most impacted, the better off they will be. And the better off the country will be.”

Diverse Representation & #ChangeMusic Launch Database to Increase Hiring of Black Professionals

Diverse Representation and Color of Change’s #ChangeMusic launched the Diverse Representation Music Database this month.

Every 8 Seconds, an American Turns 65. How Do We Care for Everyone?

Heather McGhee, chair of Color Of Change’s Board interviews Ai-jen Poo on the prospects of public economic investment in child care, elder care and paid family leave. Ai-jen is a MacArthur Genius grant winner and author of the book “The Age of Dignity.” They discuss public policy at the intersection of race, inequality and social policy on the Ezra Klein show. Ai-jen is quoted, “It is essentially a house of cards for everyone. And what’s holding it together is the unpaid work of women in our families and the underpaid work of women and majority women of color as professional care workers. And it is completely unsustainable.”

Strategic Initiatives

Democracy & Census

Black people have the power to shape our democracy and set the agenda when they speak up and turn out in elections. Through our Black Brunches we have brought together more than 20,000 people across 20 cities—including many new to politics. Going into 2020, we have tremendous opportunities to register new voters, protect voting rights, and make sure our communities are counted and represented in the 2020 Census. We are engaging local leaders and our 1.7M members to help set a progressive agenda around criminal justice reform and boost civic participation in Black communities.

Winning Justice

No one holds more power in our justice system than prosecutors. They decide who to prosecute, what the charges will be, and routinely make decisions that destroy Black people’s lives. We are ushering in a new era of prosecutor accountability by mobilizing Black communities across the country. Already, we've pushed prosecutors and candidates in a dozen cities make pledges to cut incarceration. We continue to build momentum to end the most unjust, destructive and racist practices in our system from money bail to over-sentencing, over-policing, and sending our children to adult prisons.

COC Hollywood

TV and film play a profound role in shaping American culture. Yet, when it comes to representation of Black people, culture, and issues, far too much of the content Hollywood produces promotes dangerous misunderstandings that holds back racial justice in the real world. COC Hollywood is our initiative to change the rules in Hollywood by ensuring accurate, diverse, empathetic and human portrayals of Black people onscreen. We consult on film and TV projects, partner with changemakers inside the industry, work to raise standards around hiring and diversity, and elevate Black stories.
