Your Support Makes The Work Possible

At MCU, we know that in order to build power, we have to organize people AND organize money. The people who have money continue to disrupt, disenfranchise and systemically step on those who don’t.

With increased funding over the past few years, we have already made drastic shifts to our team – including hiring new organizers AND equipping them with essentials like health insurance, data tools and more. With the addition of new organizers, our impact multiplied by giving us more hands on deck to pull more impacted individuals into the work — our numbers are growing, our power is expanding and our wins will continue.
