Who is the People & Places Collaboration? 
A coalition of networks that connect 348 member organizations — including local community-based organizations plus state and regional community development associations — working in service of thousands of communities across the U.S.

Why does it exist? 
We are committed to combating structural racism and economic disparity through policy strategy and advocacy. We exist to create the conditions for residents to determine and control the future of their neighborhoods and get what they need to ensure their long-term stability, health and wealth.  When all people & places thrive, our nation thrives.

What does it do? 
In solidarity, we advance policies, investments, and protections that prioritize the well-being of African American, Latino, Asian American, Pacific Islander and Indigenous people, and other low-and-moderate-income communities.
