Racial justice is at the center of our mission at CRC, where we work to right the wrongs of institutional disenfranchisement and transform socioeconomic realities experienced by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

What you'll get from our training

We offer our members training, education, language, resources, and a vehicle to rise to the challenge of this moment. Some of the objectives of the cohort include:

  • Supporting CRC member staff and lay leaders in developing a racial justice lens around economic justice issues specifically related to money and wealth in America.
  • Laying the groundwork for future member-led policy development and CRC’s ongoing fight for equitable investment in BIPOC communities.
  • Equiping CRC members with the language, tools, and resources to educate, inform, and activate their bases in the fight for racial and economic justice.
