With one voice, we can collaboratively combat racism and transform our communities.
By identifying and advancing policies and legislation that promote equality, expanding opportunities, and pursuing restorative justice for communities of color in Rhode Island.
We collaboratively build a consensus-driven policy and legislative agenda that cuts across lines of color and class to materially combat racism and increase opportunities for people of color in Rhode Island and across the nation.
Most community-level organizations lack the time, resources and energy to build aggressive legislative agendas. The Commission builds the membership's capacity to engage legislative work in a new way, sharing resources, knowledge, and leadership.
We prioritize building collaboration between organizations that engage communities of color in deep ways. Together, we build a vibrant, diverse, effective alliance focused on long-term structural change and grassroots empowerment.
