Color of Change

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Since 2005, Color of Change has tirelessly advocated for justice for Black Americans, and others in the country who are frequently marginalized in policy and in society. Under the presidency of Donald Trump, the organization redoubled its efforts. 2017 was a year that saw a disturbing rise in hate crimes, and a surge of racist, fascist activity that culminated in violent riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, and other cities across the country. On top of standing in opposition to the spate of racist groups, epitomized by Stormfront, that has emerged in recent years, Color of Change also began an initiative to cut them off at the source—by pushing big payment companies like MasterCard and American Express to stop processing (and profiting off of) payments directly connected to hate groups.
