*About Community Change: *CCI 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 nation's professed founding values of equality for all.
