Racial and Economic Justice

Economic Justice is a civil right. We work to end poverty and maximize economic security for all.

Our Focus: 

We advocate for systemic reforms to guarantee that all individuals, regardless of their socio-economic status, can thrive, have their rights respected, and live with dignity by ending the criminalization of poverty and ensuring Californians have their basic human needs met, with current advocacy emphasis on housing and health care access.
