Our Goals
To achieve social and economic justice, CTWO strives to shift the balance of political, economic, and communicative power by bringing the voices of poor people of color to the decision-making table. CTWO works to:

o Forge links between various communities of color to address the common problems of poverty and disenfranchisement;

o Increase the pool of highly-trained, race-conscious org

anizers of color to work for community and labor organizations that contribute to the long-term struggle for racial and social justice. o Strengthen the capacity of grassroots organizations to develop and implement effective organizing campaigns that attack the root causes of inequality and oppression. o Promote race-based analysis and its application to local and global struggles for economic and social equity.

CEASEFIRE NOW.

March, mourn, and mobilize to demand ceasefire in Gaza.

We are everyday people of conscience - uniting across faith, race, and generations - to tell President Biden and Congress that they have a choice to make: either uphold the value of all human life by working to de-escalate the violence or continue to support the Israeli governmentโ€™s massacre of the Palestinian people. In our nationโ€™s Capitol, we will stand together, arm-in-arm, as we pray with our feet and fight with our hearts for the safety, dignity, and equality of all people.

The U.S. Left has spoken. The Rising Majority, a coalition of leading Black, Indigenous, people of color (POC), and multiracial justice organizations in the United States convened by the Movement for Black Lives in 2017 and allies, call on Biden, Congress, and people of conscience to stop the Israeli assault on Gaza. Stop the genocide now, declare a ceasefire and end the occupation.

For people of conscience and progressive movements in the United States, we see many similarities between the resistance movement of Palestinians to military occupation and the movements we are part of here to end racist policing, incarceration, occupation of Indigenous territories, and white supremacist, Christian fundamentalism targeting Black people, people of color, immigrants, women, LGBTQ people, and the poor and working class.

We see our struggles for a true, working class democracy and an economy that functions for the many and not the few reflected in the struggles of the Palestinians to determine their own future, control their own destinies, and to live without displacement, dispossession, and death.

We call on the U.S. government to secure a Ceasefire Now, Stop the Genocide and end the Israeli assault on Gaza. We call each other to action because our struggles are inextricably linked. We call on all people of conscience around the world to rise up to in Gaza.

As U.S. justice organizations, we cannot allow genocide in our name.
