Only social movements can create social change.
The Center’s mission is to build the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to change their communities and public policies for the better.
In 2012, the Center for Community Change marked the 45th anniversary of its founding. Through four and a half decades, we’ve employed an impressive range of strategies to advance our work, but our overriding goal is constant: to empower low-income people, particularly in communities of color, to make change that improves their communities and the public policies that affect their lives. Through every strand of our work, past and present, runs the conviction that those most affected by economic and social injustice are the best equipped to identify what change is necessary, and to make it happen. We carry this strategy forward as we reflect on our rich history today.
