Color Of Change is an evolving, dynamic culture with a fire for increasing impact. Our work is as strong as our people are innovative and persistent—a fresh, talented team spread across Oakland, New York, Hollywood and Washington, D.C. We grow our talent through staff development, as well as new hires and partnerships. We care about talent because increasing talent increases impact: winning more campaigns, taking on new issues, strengthening our public voice, and finding news ways to build greater power for Black people in all the places we need it.
If you are reading this, you believe in racial justice, you believe in Black brilliance, you believe we should leave no one in silence. And you believe in the power of strategic, creative, digital organizing campaigns to change the society we live in. If you are as passionate as we are, and you have skills, experience and drive to make a difference, we want to hear from you. Tell us about your experience in doing any of the things we do: strategy, organizing and engagement, media and storytelling, technology and organizational growth. Let us know who you are.
We are a Black-led organization with a powerful multi-racial team, made stronger by our ability to collaborate and leverage our diversity across gender, age, upbringing, education, talent and life experience. We are committed to high standards, high impact and working with deep respect for one another, our members and our partners. Until justice is real.
Rashad Robinson’s op-ed on how Facebook tried to smear George Soros to deflect attention from their role in allowing hate speech to spread and fake news to influence US elections. This tactic is increasingly used to discredit progressive groups while allowing right-wing speech and violence to move further into the mainstream.
Color Of Change received threats tied to its relationship with George Soros after Facebook hired a right-wing PR firm to deflect from the company’s own misdoings by launching a smear campaign against its critics, which includes COC for its work on Net neutrality. Rashad Robinson responds to the anti-Semitic, anti-Black nature of these efforts to paint progressive groups as being a pawn of Soros, who is a funder of COC as is Facebook executive Dustin Moskovitz.
“Ralph Breaks the Internet,” starring a number of strong female characters, hit movie theaters this month.
