We know systemic racism and corporate power and deeply intertwined. Learn more about our focus areas for supporting Black communities.
If we are going to put an end to corporate power, we must dismantle the racist systems that have allowed that power to function and grow. Both historically and today, corporations have continued to exploit the labor of Black people, poison the land and water in Black communities, and target predominantly Black communities to sell their toxic products. Together, we must expose these abuses, and support the leadership of Black organizations fighting for justice. When we do this work day after day — fighting back against white supremacy culture, learning from our mistakes, and chipping away at the building blocks of racial capitalism — we will advance racial justice and bring about transformative change.Learn more about the Black Collective
