Community Change is both a name and a statement of our purpose. Community Change is a national organization founded in 1968 by leaders of the civil rights, labor, and anti-poverty movements as a living memorial to Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Community Change Action is a 501(c)(4) national advocacy organization aligned with Community Change, its 501(c)(3) sister organization.
These organizations believe no one should struggle to make ends meet, and that sweeping change comes when directly affected people lead a movement powered by community organizing, big ideas, and the ballot box. The people closest to the problems must lead the struggle for change and social movements anchored by community-based organizations drive social change.
The role of Community Change is to put people who are directly affected at the center of the conversation not to speak for them. Since its founding, Community Change has built the power of people directly affected by injustice people of color, women, immigrants, people struggling to make ends meet to envision and fight for a society where all people and communities thrive.
Community Change has won billions of dollars for investments in communities of color and helped expand social programs to improve the lives of families struggling to make ends meet. Community Change played a pivotal role to build the modern immigrant rights movement. Community Change brought community organizing into electoral politics, and in 2018, Community Change Action joined with core allies to run one of the largest independent programs that turned out infrequent voters of color.
The country needs sweeping, systemic change, so Community Change has embarked on a 15-year plan, our Path to Power, to enact it. The strategy includes four interconnected pillars: strengthening Black and immigrant leadership and power at the grassroots; reimagining the practice of community organizing for the 21st century; developing and deepening lasting electoral power at scale in communities of color; and developing visionary ideas and winning a bold national agenda for economic and racial justice and immigrant rights.
