We lead the fight for economic and racial justice by litigating, shaping policy, and training and connecting people in the advocacy community.
We don’t just fight for communities affected by poverty—we work alongside them, advocating for solutions that are informed by their lived experiences
We convene and connect advocates, community leaders, and activists across the country so they can share ideas, resources, and get the tools they need.
