Rashad Robinson is the President of Color Of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. In this Catalyst for Change conversation, Robinson will address racial justice and the intersection of voting freedom and economic justice.
Driven by over one million members, Color Of Change builds power for Black people and Black communities, moving decision makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people and all people. Robinson helped Color Of Change lead winning campaigns forcing over 100 corporations to stop funding ALEC, American Legislative Exchange Council, frame and win net neutrality as a major civil rights issue, and force Pat Buchanan and Bill O’Reilly off the air.
Successful Color Of Change strategies have been profiled in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fast Company and The Hollywood Reporter, and on CNN, NPR, PBS and MSNBC. In 2015, Fast Company named Color Of Change the 6th Most Innovative Company in the world, and in 2016, the Stanford Social Innovation Review profiled Color Of Change.
