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 DAs: Abortion Is Healthcare

    Now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, we'll see abortion bans in at least 26 states. Pregnant women's bodies will become sites for policing, but we can fight back. District Attorneys decide who gets charged with a crime. Tell yours to use their power to keep law enforcement out of health decisions.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Biden Grants Clemency to 70 People on Home Confinement

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve fought to get incarcerated people who pose no risk to their communities but could fall deathly ill with COVID sent home. On April 26, 2022, nearly 150,000 Color Of Change members helped convince President Biden to free 70 people on home confinement. That means they can live independently, pursue their dreams, spend time with friends and family without electronic monitors or other dehumanizing conditions of confinement. It is historic for a president to grant so many clemencies in their first term. But thousands more people deserve to be free – and risk being sent back due to minor technicalities or bureaucratic errors. People on home confinement have had to turn down jobs or miss funerals because they’re outside of the range they’re allowed to travel. Biden promised he'd end mass incarceration and cut the prison population in half. Help us hold him to that.

Two Anti-Protest Bills Defeated in Wisconsin

More than 100 dangerous anti-protest bills have circulated this country since the uprisings for racial justice two summers ago. Some of these egregious bills would make it easier to punish and criminalize protestors, cutting them off from public benefits. Others would grant immunity to people who are violent towards protestors, and do things like ram their cars into crowds. With your help, we beat back two anti-democracy bills in Wisconsin, convincing the governor to veto them. But there’s dozen of others making their way around state legislatures. That’s why Color Of Change is pressing the Department of Justice to condemn these laws and assert your right to stand up for what’s right. These bills are meant to scare people out of protesting, and encourage the type of vigilante violence we saw from Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha. We can’t let them pass.

Kendrick Fulton Is Now Free!

Thanks to more than 35,000 Color Of Change members who spoke up, Kendrick Fulton has been released from jail. But he needs clemency to stay out. Kendrick was on home confinement when he temporarily lost his housing. After two years reconnecting with his children, getting a promotion at work, going to church, and giving back, his progress was suddenly pulled away. We are thrilled Kendrick is free now and will keep fighting for the thousands of people on home confinement and living under the threat of being sent back on minor, cruel technicalities. Everyone on home confinement has already been heavily vetted for a safe release. President Biden has the power to grant them clemency and turn the cycle of incarceration around. And what we’ve witnessed during pandemic is that people always do better at home, surrounded by community.

Ketanji Brown Jackson Is Now a Supreme Court Justice—And Progressives Are Thrilled

Millions cheered as Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson became the first Black woman and first public defender to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. Her confirmation was hailed by Rashad Robinson, president of Color of Change. “Her perspective as a public defender has long been missing from the court as has her real-world experience addressing racial injustices in sentencing. We must redouble our commitment to redefining the role of judges and prosecutors—to ensure they serve the people rather than corrupt interests and they end racial injustice rather than exacerbating it.” He added, “We must also remember that Black activism—and Black voters—brought us to this long-awaited moment. They made President Biden promise to appoint a Black woman to the Supreme Court, and they made him keep that promise.”

Black Women Are More Severely Affected by Alopecia—and More Likely to Have It

Alopecia is getting growing recognition following the now infamous Academy Awards where Will Smith went onstage and slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife’s baldness. One type, called “hot comb alopecia,” mostly affects Black women and is a result over-manipulating one’s hair, often to look the part at work and get promoted in corporate America. Color Of Change’s Vice President Arisha Hatch is quoted on how hair discrimination and standards that judge women who wear their hair naturally have got to go. “Every day, Black folks suffering from alopecia and baldness are being robbed of employment opportunities, education, and dignity because employers and institutions can cloak their racism in dress code policies and vague concepts like ‘professionalism’ that were designed to shut us out.” That’s why Color Of Change is working to pass the CROWN Act.

The Emmett Till Act Makes Lynching a Federal Hate Crime

Racial justice leaders lauded this week’s passage of long overdue legislation making lynching a federal hate crime. But more needs to be done on issues that continue to plague Black and Brown neighborhoods from police brutality to attacks on voting rights. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted, “It’s important to ensure that we put this legislation in place and that it’s enforced. At the same time, it’s important that we continue to work to deal with all the ways that anti-Black racism shows up, from police violence to the ways in which our votes and ability to express ourselves in a democracy are being stolen…. Lynching wasn’t just a tool of violence. It was a tool of terror to suppress our will and our ability to engage.” Southern Democrats repeatedly used the filibuster, for example, to thwart anti-lynching legislation and many opportunities for progress.

The Senate has Confirmed Judge Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court

The Senate made history today when it confirmed Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. After 233 years, she is the first Black woman to ever serve on the nation’s highest court. Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson is quoted, “We have to remember that Black activism and Black voters did brought us this long-awaited moment. We demanded representation and not just in gender and race but in perspective, values and experience.” He says Jackson raises the bar for what voters should expect from the court, and her confirmation process is an indication of how he thinks Republicans will speak about Black and Brown people in the midterm elections.

Biden Struck Out on Police Reform. Is Trump’s Remaining Policy Enough?

What has the federal government done to address violent and racist policing since George Floyd was killed two years ago? With Biden halting a proposed policing order, which itself was a seriously scaled down plan B after failing to get enough votes to pass the George Floyd Act, Trump’s modest changes are the most significant federal policing moves we’ve seen. Under Trump’s order, police agencies must have specific policies on the use of force to receive certain federal grants. Advocates who were promised sweeping reforms are frustrated. Color Of Change’s Senior Director of Criminal Justice Campaigns Scott Roberts explains, “Trump’s order is not significant in and of itself, but it exposes how little Biden has done to deliver on his promises around this issue, and how quickly his administration has pivoted away from this movement for police reform that helped sweep them into office.” Many believe without the mass protests that galvanized millions of Black voters, Biden would not necessarily have won in 2020.

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.

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.
