Empowering BIPOC Managers and Executive Leaders to Transform our Sector

The Anti-Racist Champions of Change (ARCC) program is a full year of in-depth leadership development opportunities for non-profit affordable housing BIPOC managers and their executive-level leaders. If you’re an anti-racist champion of change and are ready to see your organization at the forefront of change, then this program is for you!

ARCC is designed to create safe space for us to come together to work toward dismantling oppressive power dynamics in the affordable housing movement and industry in the Bay Area. We aren’t talking about inviting more to the table; we want to rebuild the table entirely! We envision an affordable housing sector led by Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and their allies working together towards safe, stable, and affordable housing for all through a transformation of our organizations and our field.
