Center for Community Change: Organizing to Confront Poverty’s Root Causes


The Center for Community Change – one of the nation’s most effective organizations dedicated to building the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to improve their communities and the policies and institutions that affect their lives – has a bold plan to confront and reduce poverty. Metropolitan Group is helping them launch So Everyone Thrives: The Campaign to Fight Poverty in the U.S. The campaign will raise and invest $50 million in community organizing, savvy communications, and policy change so that, by 2025, we will see 7 to 10 million people emerge from poverty as we change the systems and conditions that keep people poor.
