"The Center for Community Change is a progressive social justice organization
whose central project is to support the emergence of one or more movements for
social and economic justice in the U.S. The Center strives to transform the
national debate and national politics as well as the institutions, economic
systems and policies that affect low-income people and working class people,
especially people of color.
"The heart of our work is helping grassroots leaders build strong
organizations that bring people together to become a force for change. To do
this, we help people develop the skills and resources they need to improve their
communities and change the policies and institutions that adversely affect their
lives. We believe that poor people themselves, through organizations they
control, need to lead efforts to create social justice."
