Analysis / Bias
Color of Change is primarily an advocacy website focused on issues related to racial justice and equality. The organization campaigns for policy reforms, corporate accountability, and social change to address systemic racism and promote the well-being of Black communities.
As an advocacy organization, colorofchange.org takes a clear stance on social and political issues, advocating for change from a progressive perspective such as this Demand Applebee’s Increase Wages Equitably and this Stop Enabling DeSantis & Let AP African American Studies Be Taught in Schools! Both campaigns are sourced directly from the petitions. In general, Color of Change is mostly fact-based and holds progressive left biases.
