Communities United (CU)'s mission is to organize and empower low income Marylanders to achieve transformative change on issues of racial, economic and social justice. Our organizing is centered in Baltimore. Our community organizing model hinges on intensive member engagement and leadership development. We do this by engaging and building leadership among those most directly impacted by injustice - racism, poverty, trauma, addiction, criminalization - to build resilient grassroots power among those historically shut out of Baltimore’s economic and political life.
Founded in 2010, the mission of Communities United (CU) is a small 501c4, with an all Black, member elected Board of Directors and a dedicated administrative and organizing staff. We are part of the Center for Popular Democracy's national network of grassroots organizing affiliates, and they serve as our fiscal sponsor
