Disrupting the status quo

We're committed to dismantling racism and disrupting inequality to create a society where all people can truly be free. Our work includes civic engagement, systemically building racial equity, and supporting policies and institutions that prioritize the urgent needs of Black people, who are most impacted by race-based discrimination. 

From city halls to the Supreme Court, using advocacy and litigation, we will secure civil rights for everyone.

Black America Policy Recommendations for the Biden Administration 

As the nation calls for an end to structural disparities, the federal government has a duty to examine its own house to determine how it perpetuates and fosters institutional racism. Our policy recommendations, including a presidential cabinet-level position focused on racial justice, are with President Joe Biden.
