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.

Twitter Adds Protections Based on Race & Ethnicity to Its Content Policy

In another win towards stopping the spread of hate online, Twitter announced it will expand its “dehumanization content policy” to protect people based on race, ethnicity, national origin, and caste. This move reflects the power of Color Of Change members and the Change the Terms coalition, which met with Twitter executives in 2018 and have been pushing the company to take a stronger stance since. It’s a huge step towards protecting Black social media users and getting rid of racist and violence-inciting tweets. Until now, Twitter has been slow to reign in far-right extremists, letting misinformation around the elections to spread. Going forward our focus will be on ensuring that Twitter enforces the new policy. Examples of the kind of content that will now be banned can be found here.

Incarcerated People Fighting Wildfires Finally Eligible for Jobs When They Get Out

For decades, our country has unfairly relied on prison labor — and nowhere is this more obvious than in California, where thousands of people behind bars help fight fires each fall, risking their lives for $1 an hour. In response to a Color Of Change campaign, California Governor Gavin Newsom just signed an order expunging felonies off firefighters' records. This means that people who fight fires while incarcerated can now join the firefighting ranks and build a real career based on their training and experience once they're out. It's high time we end discrimination against formerly incarcerated people, and stop erecting barriers to jobs, housing, and full participation in society. And we will continue our fight to make sure incarcerated firefighters are fully compensated and valued for their work.

Rochester’s Police Chief Resigns as Quest for #JusticeforDaniel Continues

Our campaign seeking justice for Daniel Prude, a 41-year-old Black man in need of mental health help who was killed by cops in March is gathering steam. Rochester's police chief and deputy police chief both resigned after body camera footage was released showing what we all knew: Daniel should be alive today. For a week straight, organizers held protests and 77,000 COC members spoke out demanding the officers be fired, charged, and the city changes how it responds to mental health crises. Daniel's brother had called police for help, explaining he was a threat to no one but himself. Instead, they brutalized Daniel and knelt on his back 'til he couldn't breathe. We will not relent. Our quest for justice continues as we press Rochester’s mayor and city council to pass legislation that requires medical professionals — and not armed cops — to respond to medical calls.

Corporate-Backed Police Foundations Pose ‘Threat to Democracy and Black Lives’

Many of the same corporations trumpeting support for Black lives are duplicitously bankrolling police violence through little-known but powerful police foundations, a new Color Of Change and LittleSis report revealed. The report highlights financial ties between police foundations and 55 Fortune 500 firms. It notes, “There is a police foundation in nearly every major American city, behind almost every police department, backed by wealthy donors and giant multinational corporations. In 2020, many police foundations’ top corporate sponsors made public statements in support of Black Lives Matter while providing a corporate slush fund for police.” COC President Rashad Robinson is quoted, “Only cutting ties with police foundations will show that corporate leaders are serious about protecting Black lives and bringing our police departments into the 21st century… We cannot let corporations talk about ‘Black lives’ on their Twitter feeds while also funding police violence on our streets.”

Racial Justice Advocates Hope for Pardon of George Floyd’s Past Drug Charges

Criminal justice reform experts are hopeful that if Texas governor Greg Abbott approves a pardon request for George Floyd’s decades old drug charges, it will send a message about the prejudices of a system that disproportionately incarcerates Black and Latino people. At the murder trial, Derek Chauvin’s defense lawyers tried to portray Floyd’s history of drug use as the cause of his death or a justification for the violence inflicted upon him — a common tactic in police defenses. Color Of Change’s Sr Director of Criminal Justice Campaigns Scott Roberts is quoted. “Like many other Black people who are killed by police, George Floyd’s character was tarnished by rightwing media, who used his past conviction record as a way to indict him for his own murder.” Floyd’s 2004 arrest and conviction have come under scrutiny as the undercover officer involved has himself been charged with murder and drug trafficking in Houston. “It will hopefully bring more attention and scrutiny to the miscarriages of justice that play out daily in our communities, police stations, and court rooms.”

The Democrats’ Last Best Shot to Kill the Filibuster

The Senate filibuster is the biggest obstacle to passing legislation on a wide range of issues Biden promised to address from immigration, police reform and voting rights to gun control and raising the minimum wage. Groups that helped mobilize the massive turnout in 2020 warn that failing to overturn the filibuster will have disastrous consequences. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson says, “Is it going to be our job to go out and to explain to people, ‘Hey, we know you turned out in 2020 in the midst of a global pandemic… You put your health on the line… You overcame all sorts of voter suppression tactics, and now let me tell you why none of those things actually happened that you thought you were promised: it’s this thing called the filibuster’ … Democrats are making a huge miscalculation if they think that folks are going to continue to put rocks on their backs and climb uphill if the Democrats are not willing to do the work to undo Jim Crow rules that time and again have been used to stall progress.”

‘Past Angry’: Victims’ Families, Civil Rights Leaders Condemn Failed Police Reform Talks

Last week, the bipartisan talks around the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act ended without a deal as both sides came to an impasse over qualified immunity. Bridgett Floyd said she could barely find the words to describe her disappointment in lawmakers for failing to pass sweeping reforms bearing her brother’s name. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson said he’s unsurprised talks broke down in a “filibuster environment” designed to block civil rights laws. Voters of color turned out in record numbers last year to elect Democrats he says, and they are being let down. “It’s unacceptable that our leaders continue to fail to deliver. Democrats got the majority and they can’t keep telling our community to put aside our safety, our dignity, our humanity in the face of unchecked violent policing.”

National Media Coverage of Gabby Petito’s Disappearance Raises Questions for Missing People Of Color

The investigation into the death of Long Island native Gabby Petito hits close to home for families of still missing loved ones. National media coverage and tips were a huge help in the investigation; now many are asking why the same kind of attention is rarely if ever given to missing people of color. The disparity in national news coverage of missing persons based on race is dramatic. It’s another example of how Black lives simply are not valued. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson talks about how poor representation on TV shows play into the problem. “We produced a report called ‘Normalizing Injustice’ … and talked to writers and producers, they felt like people would turn off the TV if the victim was a black woman.” It’s a wake-up call, he says, for the media to take a look at their own biases, which have a real effect on safety in communities of color.

Color Of Change Launches Writer’s Room Database & Anti-Racist Training Directory

#ChangeHollywood just released a writer’s room database of experts and anti-racist trainer directory — resources aimed at helping the industry fulfill all the pledges it made during last year’s racial justice protests. The idea is to connect execs in Hollywood with those who can effect change. The writer’s room database connects producers with experts who can pave the way for more authentic and humanizing portrayals of Black people. They are all people with deep first-hand knowledge of things like law enforcement and issues impacting Black people. The directory is aimed at taking diversity training — an $8 billion-a-year industry — to the next level by offering companies a list of vetted firms that understand how to spur organizational change.
