Long-term Systems Change
Building an inclusive multi-racial democracy requires us to transform our current systems and build a just economy where everyone can participate and every community benefits, regardless of their race or where they live.
The root causes of enormous economic and racial disparities such as the unfair concentration of wealth, disenfranchisement, and prosperity that relies on extracting natural resources, are deeply embedded into our economic system.
That’s why we work closely with frontline communities of color to be agents for long-term change.
Empowering Communities, Building Capacity
We know from our many years in the trenches that it takes more than one policy, one grant, or one project to undo generations of systemic racism. That’s why we support low-income communities of color to exert their power and build capacity with community-based organizations to create and establish their own innovative and enduring solutions.
This long-term systemic change will create an economy that meets the needs of the people who have suffered the most under our current system, particularly people of color. We know we will be successful when our economic system is transformed into one that is cooperative, sustainable, participatory, fair, and healthy for all.
