Community Change

Community Change We support grassroots organizing, progressive policy, justice and opportunity for all people. The Center was founded in 1968 as a living memorial to honor the life and legacy of Robert F.
(87)

Kennedy. The Center strengthens, connects and mobilizes grassroots groups to enhance their leadership, voice and power. We believe that vibrant community-based organizations, led by the people most affected by social and economic injustice, are key to putting an end to the failed go-it-alone politics of the past and building a better America for everyone based on community values.

Mission: To build the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to change the policies and institutions that impact their lives.

Debt collectors should be forced to stop hounding Americans during the pandemic

NEW ✨ "Some debt collectors even swooped in and grabbed stimulus checks before the recipients had a chance to see a penny, prompting some states to enforce restrictions." Our communications fellow Bobbi Dempsey for Business Insider: bit.ly/2X7zCIn

Countless times a day, these debt collectors will reach someone who is unemployed, financially struggling, or mourning a loved one who died of COVID.

As COVID-19 vaccine rolls out, undocumented immigrants fear deportation after seeking dose

"But after years of isolationist and punitive immigration policies from the Trump administration, many immigrants – whose physical and fiscal health has been disproportionately hurt by the pandemic – might be unwilling to come forward." #COVID19 bit.ly/2J9c5U9

As the COVID-19 vaccine starts getting distributed, immigration activists worry that undocumented residents will resist for fear of being deported.

Stacey Abrams in Spotlight as Georgia Senate Races Head to Runoffs

"[Abrams] built a new coalition of Black voters, Asian Americans, Latinos and young white residents, a success that puts her in the spotlight as the state’s two Senate races - which will determine control of the U.S. Senate - head to runoff elections." https://bit.ly/37d2PYl

Can Stacey Abrams deliver another Democratic victory? Georgia’s two Senate races, on which the control of the U.S. Senate depends, will be decided in runoff elections on Jan. 5 because none of the candidates got 50% of the vote.
