ColorofChange.org members consistently pressured Congress to eliminate the disparity in sentencing for crack and powder cocaine offenses, so recent news of a halt in prison population growth is of particular importance to our community. Low-income Black and Latino communities have been devastated by discriminatory drug policies -- policies that have contributed to placing in one in nine Black men between the ages of 20 and 34 behind bars.

Welcome to the new blog! Today's launch is part of our ongoing effort to provide the ColorOfChange community with opportunities to be in conversation with our staff and each other. We have a six-year track record if engaging you in rapid response online campaigns that have lasting impact, and we see this blog as yet another path to advancing political power for Black America and our allies.
