How we work


We believe there are two sources of power: Organized people, and organized money. Cleveland Owns organizes people who want to organize their money.

We work with grassroots groups to deepen their capacity to organize and to develop businesses -- two practices essential for building community wealth and power.

We organize across race and class, and prioritize work with Black, Latinx, Indigenous and low-income people leading the fight for justice.
