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 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.
  • Demand Twitch Do a Racial Equity Audit

    On May 14, a white nationalist murdered 10 Black people at a grocery store in Buffalo--livestreamed on Twitch. The fact that he was able to use Twitch to spread racist ideology and broadcast violence is the latest example of how the company fails to protect Black users. It's time #TwitchDoBetter and address white supremacy on its platform.
  • Amazon, Conduct a Racial Equity Audit!

    Amazon has an opportunity to do right by its workers, but continues to fall short. Under mounting pressure for a full racial equity audit, Amazon is punting. Their audit wouldn't examine whether Black workers are paid less or have limited opportunities for promotion -- or the health harms in Black and Brown neighborhoods where their warehouses are based.
  • Demand Justice For Patrick Lyoya!

    On April 4, Patrick Lyoya was shot in the back of the head by a Grand Rapids MI police officer during a traffic stop. The bodycam footage shows his execution-style murder. Now officials have gone silent, refusing to share the name of the officer, who's been sent on paid leave. We will fight for Patrick.
  • Implement Hair Policies that Protect Black Employees

    Hair discrimination attacks the livelihood and economic vitality of Black women. This practice is racist, and it is real. Black women are frequently denied job opportunities and unfairly disciplined for wearing their natural hair. It's time for big corporations to take action.
  • 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.
  • Take Action Against Anti-Trans Laws

    In February, Texas's governor announced a directive to investigate parents and doctors who provide gender-affirming services for trans youth. There's a similar law brewing in Florida, but it can't go anywhere if prosecutors don't enforce it. Tell prosecutors to take a stand against criminalizing trans youth.
  • Release Medically Vulnerable People from Prison!

    Already, 3 women have died from COVID-19 at Alderson this year. All 3 had preexisting conditions and had asked for compassionate release. The Bureau of Prisons has the power to let medically vulnerable people finish their sentences on home confinement so they don't have to risk their lives.
  • Tell Textbook Publishers to Teach the Truth!

    Conservatives are passing laws to erase Black history from our classrooms. Our teachers are under attack for telling the truth about our country's past. No one can remain silent. Join us in calling on publishers to commit to making sure their textbooks and curricula are accurate!

NYPD Officer Fired for Murdering Eric Garner

Five years after the tragic and unnecessary death of Eric Garner, NYC mayor and police commissioner fired Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who put Garner in a chokehold and refused to let him go. COC members were part of a powerful coalition with dozens of groups around New York demanding justice. Though Garner’s death was ruled a homicide, until now the officers who restrained him had walked away with no consequences and their jobs intact.

Holding Central Park 5 Prosecutor Accountable

Far too often, prosecutors prioritize conviction rates over the truth, ruining the lives of innocent Black and Brown people. Linda Fairstein prosecuted the Central Park Five, coercing confessions and wrongfully convicting five boys from Harlem for a brutal rape they knew nothing about. They spent years in prison before being exonerated. We went after Fairstein and persuaded Simon & Schuster to stop publishing her popular crime novels, telling the company it can’t profit off someone who reinforces racist ideas of crime and justice.

Google Bans Bail Ads

Color Of Change has been working to end money bail, which is one of the largest drivers of incarceration of Brown and Black people. People should never be locked up simply because they can’t afford to pay bail. We’ve gone after the predatory bail bonds industry, partnering with Jay-Z on a video, publishing an op-ed in the New York Times, and successfully pressing Google to pull its ads for bail. This makes it harder for bail agencies to exploit people and sets a new norm that major companies should steer clear of those profiteering from mass incarceration. We are now pushing Google to conduct a full racial equity audit of their business policies and practices too.

Law Enforcement Diversity May Improve Policing, Study Shows

Goerge Floyd’s murder by MNPD led to widespread protests and calls for reform, including hiring more non-white and female officers. But there was little research to back up the idea, until now. In a study on 3M Chicago PD assignments, researchers found Black and Hispanic officers made far fewer arrests and used force less often—especially against Black people. Erika Maye, Color Of Change’s Deputy Director of Criminal Justice Campaigns, eschews the notion that hiring more BIPOC cops is the answer. “Police violence is not an issue of representation. To really protect Black lives, we feel we really need to upend the current policing system.” And invest in healthcare, education, and job training in Black communities.

Most Black Voters Support Eliminating Student Loan Debt, New Survey Finds

Color Of Change’s newest survey shows Black voters consider student loan debt forgiveness crucial to addressing racism and inequality. 9 in 10 Black women support some form of debt forgiveness; 5 in 10 support total loan forgiveness. 40% of Black people say they wouldn’t vote for someone who opposes it. Color Of Change Vice President Arisha Hatch is quoted, “The elimination of student loan debt is incredibly related to the eradication of racial wealth disparities. It is impossible to talk about an economic justice agenda that doesn’t include… how Black people in this country are indebted in ways that require them to not realize their dreams, or to stay in discriminatory workplace situations.”

Activists Chart Course for Black America’s Progress After a Year of Turmoil

Despite a slew of promises from politicians following massive racial justice uprisings, activists say leaders need to prove they are accountable and make changes that benefit Black and Brown communities. Years of Black grassroots organizing led to record-breaking Black voter turnout in 2020 that propelled Biden and Harris to victory and overturned Georgia’s seats to flip the U.S. Senate. Color Of Change’s Vice President Arisha Hatch is quoted. “The win unlocks the full possibility of the restorative and transformational agenda that Black voters and organizers worked for in November. This improbable and hard-won victory will allow President-elect Biden to pursue the agenda he laid forth in his victory speech, one that centers the needs of Black communities.”

Color of Change’s Essential Black History Month Reading List

Color Of Change’s President and Vice President Rashad Robinson and Arisha Hatch, two of the moment’s most powerful civil rights leaders, tell us what they’re reading. In recent years, the two have pressed Hollywood studios to diversify their writers rooms, pushed for banks to stop processing payments from hate groups, and helped launch a prominent ad boycott of Facebook last summer for not doing enough to limit hate speech. With an eye toward creating lasting, structural change in America, they hold businesses accountable for the consequences of their products and where they put their money. Here are their book recommendations for understanding how to create change today.

I’m a Writer on Emily in Paris. I May Destroy You Deserved a Golden Globe Nomination.

Color Of Change’s reporting on Hollywood — where 91% of showrunners are white and 80% are male — is cited in this article on how the film, TV, and music are still held back by largely white (and often close-minded) gatekeepers. Emily in Paris writer Deborah Copaken says the fact that her show was nominated for a Golden Globe for best comedy while I May Destroy You was passed over completely for nominations reveals “what is wrong with everything.” After a year of uprisings for racial justice, it turns out, when it comes to our cultural industries, America still has a long way to go. She asks: when we will start giving awards to shows that deserve them, no matter the color of the skin of their creators?

For Black Pioneers Harris and Obama, Different Times Mean Different Approaches on Race

While Barack Obama campaigned for president in 2008 with explicit advice from his inner circle to downplay anything “that might be labeled racial grievance” or would emphasize him as a “the Black candidate,” things are different now. A dozen years later, Kamala Harris is able to lean harder into her public identity as a Black woman taking her place as second-in-command in an administration that has made closing the racial wealth gap one of its policy pillars. Color Of Change Chief of Campaigns Arisha Hatch is quoted. “Both of them are candidates that act as translators on race. We’re just in a different place as a country.” Democrats have realized they would not have won the presidency or control of Congress without the high turnout among Black voters and Black women in particular.

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.
