People making powerful ripples of change

People in cities, regions, and states around the country are making unique contributions to building sustainable community power. They have the capacity to create ripples of change that move the whole country toward an inclusive, equitable society grounded in racial justice and health equity.

We invest in deepening and expanding local and state power-building infrastructures that facilitate connections across movements and regions and align resources to support these efforts. The cities and states where the Partnership is investing represent diverse geographies and constituencies—from communities of color and poor working-class Americans to urban neighborhoods and rural communities. 

Our focus in these places is not only about policy wins, but using the power and momentum to continue pushing for community-determined solutions in all areas of life.

We invest in six places across the country to deepen and expand organizing infrastructures and community capacities to fully exercise their power to shape the policies and systems that touch their lives.
