Real Change exists to provide opportunity and a voice to low-income and homeless people while taking action for economic, social and racial justice.
JOBS - Low-barrier, immediate work opportunity for anyone who needs it.
JOURNALISM - Our weekly, award-winning newspaper covers issues that impact our community.
JUSTICE - Anti-capitalist advocacy that centers the voices of those most impacted.
Real Change is led by and accountable to the community we serve. Vendor committees advise each department, including the Vendor Organizing Committee, the Vendor Advisory Board, and the Editorial Committee. Currently, due to the pandemic, committee activity is paused. Vendor leaders also serve on the Board of Directors.
We envision a just, caring and inclusive community, where people are no longer marginalized by racism and classism and have the means to live with dignity.
Courage: Telling the truth and taking risks
