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 Hotels to House the Survivors of Ida

    16 years after Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana, Ida struck, leaving thousands of people stranded and facing more than a month in their homes without power. We're calling on hotels to house hurricane survivors for free. Moments like these show which companies really care about Black lives.
  • Twitch, Protect Black Creators from Online Harassment!

    On August 13, Kayla Bolden partnered with Twitch on “Stand Up To Cancer,” an event to raise money for cancer research. Twice, 400 bots dropped in and bombarded Kayla with racist slurs. And Twitch did nothing to stop it. It's time for Twitch to do better.
  • Tell Bobby Scott to Cancel Student Debt!

    For too long, Black people have been trapped in lifelong, impossible-to-repay student loans. The Chair of the House Committee on Education has a responsibility to “build an America where everyone can succeed.” Tell him it's time to eliminate student debt.
  • Tell Congress to Pass the Break the Cycle of Violence Act!

    Join us in calling on Congress to pass the Break the Cycle of Violence Act, which includes $5B for gun violence prevention. Poverty produces violence, and over-policing Black communities only increases violence. It's time to try something new.
  • Demand California Pass SB 710 for Police Accountability

    Police unions are one of our biggest roadblocks to reform. SB 710 would require prosecutors who've taken donations from police unions to recuse themselves from cases involving cops. It's a crucial step towards real justice.
  • Google, Conduct a Racial Equity Audit!

    Last summer, Google pledged its support for Black people. Instead, they've blocked companies from using “Black Lives Matter” to tag videos while allowing ads on content tagged "White Power” or “White Lives Matter.” This is heinous. It's time for an audit of how Google's policies and practices affect Black people.
  • Tell Superintendent Browning to Erase the Database

    In Pasco County, Florida we're fighting to protect Black and Brown students from police surveillance. Help us shut down programs targeting children and stop law enforcement from accessing student info without consent.
  • Laura Curran, Veto NY's Anti-Protest Bill

    Police officers in Nassau County, Long Island can now sue people for harassment without proof -- retaliation for last year’s protests, and an attempt to silence those who speak out against racial injustice. But we won’t be silenced. Let's stop this bill before it's signed into law.
  • Demand Biden Grant Clemency for 4,000 Elders!

    50,000 Color Of Change members spoke up and helped free Gwen Levi, a 76-year old grandmother and cancer survivor who was re-incarcerated after missing a phone call from her case manager. Let's free all elders on home confinement now.

  • Media Justice

RCA Drops R. Kelly

For decades people in the music industry turned a blind eye to R. Kelly’s blatant sexual and emotional abuse of women and girls. We teamed up with dream hampton to promote and elevate her docu-series Surviving R. Kelly, which was streamed 25M times – then went after RCA, successfully pressuring them to drop R. Kelly from their label. This sends a message to all artists and record labels – you can no longer profit off of abusers and hold out artists who exploit women and girls as cultural icons.

Biden Has Achieved His No. 1 Campaign Promise: Beat Trump. Now What?

After winning, now comes the hard part for Joe Biden — delivering on his promises to push far-reaching progressive initiatives to improve healthcare and usher in an era of economic and racial justice. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted on what it’ll take for him to succeed. “Biden is going to have to be willing to do something he hasn’t always been willing or able to do — to work with and engage with and mobilize grassroots energy. That is one of the powerful forces at the back of the Trump presidency. “

Trump Blames Low-income People, Minorities for ‘Ruining’ Suburbia

A month out from Election Day, Trump is appealing to the voting groups that shored up his base in 2016 while Biden chips away at them. It’s a familiar playbook. Color Of Change is cited alongside the Movement for Black Lives for calling out the president’s comments, especially on debate night–saying telling the Proud Boys to “stand by” is a rallying cry to white nationalists. The president’s failure to condemn white supremacists and the Proud Boys ends up amplifying such extremist groups online and helps them grow in size and impact.

Athlete Protests Are Now Celebrated. But 1 Olympian Says She’s Paying for Hers.

When Olympian Gwen Berry threw her fist in the air on the awards podium–in protest of the country’s treatment of Black Americans–it nearly cost her her career. She lost most of her corporate sponsors and had to take on an outside job while training for the next Olympics. So Color Of Change stepped up, sponsoring Berry not for endorsements but to encourage her to keep raising her voice. “Our bottom line is justice, not profit,” Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson said. “We need Gwen to raise her voice in powerful ways and to compete and succeed on the field.” Meanwhile, they’re urging corporations to support Black athletes and stand on the right side of history.

November’s Coming. Are Democrats Losing the Battle Over Voter Suppression?

As Election Day nears, Democrats are scrambling to counter disinformation campaigns, complicated absentee ballot requirements and changes in polling locations likely to primarily harm Black and Latino voters. After information surfaced that Trump’s campaign targeted 3.5M Black voters in 2016, Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson commented, “This has been the fear, and this has been what we’re raising our voices about. We are facing a tax that we can’t always see until they’ve hurt us,” referencing poll taxes that once kept Black Americans from voting.

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.
