Community Change is one of the oldest, continuously operating anti-racist organizations in the nation. Since our founding in 1968 CCI has kept its commitment to dismantling structural racism. We exist because historically, in the United States, white people have had the power to create and control the institutions that govern the lives of all who live here. This has produced a system of advantage for white people who benefit from unearned privilege at the expense of people of color and damages our collective humanity. Our vision is to create an equitable society that reflects our nations professed founding values of equality for all.
