Issue Advocacy

Amplifying on-the-ground voices for greater legislative influence and impact.

While is not an issue-focused organization, in the course of our work with progressive people of color, we do take a stand on key issues affecting our communities. We work with allies on the ground to strengthen their ability to fight the good fight.

For example, we have been active in environmental issue work in California (Communities United to Oppose Prop 23) and North Carolina (Sierra Club’s effort to build support in our communities). We have also worked closely with the ACLU on eliminating the death penalty in California. We have been supporting the work of the Center for Community Change to reduce poverty nationally. As we go forward we are looking at returning voter rights to ex-offenders in Florida and election reform just about everywhere.
