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.
  • Join Our Miami Children's Carnival

    On Saturday July 30 at noon, we'll hold our Miami children's carnival, bringing Black joy & Black history to our communities -- creating a space where young people can express themselves and lean into their unique power. We'll talk about cultivating joy, community, and the fight for justice. Space is limited so RSVP now!
  • Corporations, Don't Fund Abortion Bans!

    Since Roe v. Wade, we've seen a slew of laws banning abortion before most people even know they're pregnant. Studies suggest that if abortions were banned everywhere, the Black maternal mortality rate would double. Corporations including CVS, Nike, Citigroup, Coca-Cola, and Uber have donated millions to groups leading the attack. #DefundAbortionBans
  • Big Tech, Don't Criminalize Women!

    The end of Roe v. Wade affects our privacy. Facebook, Amazon, and Apple collect data on searches for abortion clinics and pregnancy symptoms -- which they could be required to hand over. Tech companies need to make sure they're not accomplices in criminalizing people seeking abortions & halt collection of private data now.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Facebook Bans White Nationalist Content

Following intense pressure from COC members and direct engagement with our team, Facebook announced it would no longer allow white nationalist content on its platform. Banning white nationalism and separatist speech on Facebook and Instagram is a huge blow to efforts to spread white supremacy, raise money for anti-Black hate groups, and recruit others. It sets an important new standard to keep racist, violent philosophies off of social media and out of mainstream media. While Facebook still has more to do to ensure this policy is properly enforced, it is a significant step forward that will help keep us safer on and offline.

NY, CO, TX, MD Take a Stand Against Money Bail

In 2019, we scored a number of victories to end money bail. Bail is used to imprison innocent people who don’t have the funds to pay their way out while awaiting trial. In NY and CO, we worked with grassroots groups to support the passage of historic legislation that will slash the jail and prison population. Our campaign to embolden progressive prosecutors to end money bail continues too. In Prince George, MD, the State’s Attorney announced her office will no longer request cash bail. In Bexar County, TX the DA recommends people who cannot afford bail be released unless they’re specifically a “flight risk.” Pre-trial detention has ruined the lives of hundreds of thousands of Black and Brown people from Sandra Bland to Kalief Browder and mires many more in impossible debt.

Wedding Sites Back Away from Plantation Weddings

After Color Of Change reached out to wedding planning sites Pinterest and The Knot, both companies agreed to stop promoting old slave plantations for weddings and stop using language that romanticizes their history. Now the Knot is working with Color Of Change to create new guidelines for vendors. Zola said they’d stop listing plantations and will work with us to ensure their policies “make everyone feel welcome.” Our campaign took off in the media, and was covered in outlets from the FOX and ABC News to the New York Times. With this victory, we sent a clear message to the wedding industry: there’s nothing romantic about slavery. This win moves us one step closer to a world where it is no longer acceptable to make millions by exploiting Black people’s suffering.

Advancing Black Entrepreneurship Amid a Pandemic

Only 4% of Black-owned businesses in the U.S. survive past the startup stage, even though 20% of Black Americans start businesses, according to a new report by McKinsey and Company. The pandemic has forced many businesses to close their doors, and about 58% of Black-owned businesses were at risk of financial distress before the pandemic. This is consistent with what Color Of Change’s survey found last year: 40% of Black businesses said they could only last another six months, compared with 55% of their white business owner counterparts. The wealth gap, Color Of Change explains is reinforced by many factors from access to capital, bank loans, and relief programs like PPP that mean Black entrepreneurs have a much tougher time sustaining their businesses.

As Big Corporations Strike a Pose for Racial Justice, They Keep on Funding the Police

Salon reports how corporations including AT&T, Target, and Starbucks have embraced racial justice rhetoric while continuing to funnel millions of dollars to police. While claiming to stand with Black employees, corporations pour money into law enforcement through police foundations. Because they are nonprofits, police foundations can raise unregulated slush funds from undisclosed sources, which they often use to buy special weapons and equipment not covered by city budgets. Color Of Change Vice President Arisha Hatch says, “Police foundations are really good at hiding what they’re actually spending their money on. These foundations exist completely off the books.” It’s a problem.

A Surprise Ending for the Oscars’ Inclusive Night

Last year, the academy announced a plan requiring films to meet diversity criteria to be eligible for a best-picture nomination, starting in 2024. Still, those who have been critical of the way the film industry operates are not ready to heap too much praise on the academy. Rashad Robinson, behind Color Of Change’s #ChangeHollywood initiative is quoted. “What we have to constantly recognize is that an institution like the academy didn’t give anything to Black people. What the academy has done over the years is have a system and a set of rules that has stalled Black careers and prevented people from being fully seen. Now that they are working to make some changes, let’s acknowledge those changes but let’s not give them any awards that they haven’t earned.”

‘Let This Be a Turning Point’: Chauvin Conviction Sparks Calls for ‘True Justice’

This is accountability, but not justice many have said in the wake of the guilty verdict against Derek Chauvin for killing George Floyd. Common Dreams surveyed leaders at 20 organizations fighting for change. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted saying, “Nine minutes and 29 seconds will forever be supplanted in our hearts and memory… we use this moment to push for real change because the fight for accountability and justice in America is far from over. The Chauvin trial may be over, but what comes next will be the consequential moment in our history. We need to do more than raise our voices; we must demand action now.”

Asian Americans Experienced Largest Rise in Severe Online Hate in 2020, Report Finds

A new survey by the Anti-defamation League reveals that Asian and Black people are experiencing serious increases in harassment online, while LGBTQ+ people face the highest rate. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson said the results of the study were “unsurprising”, as it’s proven that online hate disproportionately affects communities of color. “For 5 years, Color Of Change has campaigned to bring attention to this growing threat, and we’ve implored Facebook to prioritize addressing the dangers of hate proliferating on their platform. At this point, only sweeping oversight and enforcement from the federal government will force Facebook to change its broken business model and violence-driven algorithm that incentivizes hate for profit.”

RADIO INTERVIEW: Corporations & Voting Rights

Rashad Robinson, president of Color of Change, joins WNYC host Brian Lehrer to talks about how corporate America is reacting to legislation that restricts voting rights – in Georgia, Texas, and other swing states – and what COC members are doing about it. Rashad says, “Corporations play an outsized role in advocating the terms of our democracy… We are engaging in the free market the same way they do — by telling them that they can’t come for our money by day and take away our vote or make us unsafe by night.”
