"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
Dr. Martin Luther King
Community for Change is an independent, non-partisan, progressive coalition of organizers representing a wide variety of political and social issues. C4C was formed in the fall of 2008 from the field organizers and highly active volunteers from the Campaign for Change organization in Racine County.
Since that time, C4C has gone on to lead initiatives in voter engagement (Turn Up the Vote!), health care (Enroll Racine), immigration (Immigration Action Coalition), gun-violence (Rid the Piece & Place of Peace) and public policy initiatives.
The C4C voter engagement program, "Turn Up the Vote!" was awarded the Phyllis Dresen "Spirit of Democracy" Award in 2012 and has gone on to become a model for voter engagement nationwide.
