CTCORE-Organize Now! Is dedicated to building a culture of racial justice community organizing by supporting and training a network of grassroots leaders who are committed to dismantling institutional racism and doing racial justice policy focused community organizing in our state. Our goal with this work is to build anti racist community and to co-create a movement for greater racial equity in our state.
We achieve our mission through Community Organizing and Community Building. CTCORE (Community Organizing for Racial Equity) organizes statewide, at the grassroots level to push racial justice policies at the local and state levels. We have identified four racial justice categories as our focus: Criminal Justice Reform, Education Equity, Economic Justice & Environmental Justice/Health Equity. Our members engage community members, conduct community research, and organize issue campaigns at the grassroots level to bring about reform in these areas. We provide resources for new and experienced organizers (trainings, workshops, online resources) and create spaces to foster community and support organizing efforts around the state.
