The Raben Group is representing Color of Change and its effort to “build real power for Black communities."
Oakland-based CoC says it’s the No. 1 online racial justice organization, with more than 7M members.
Raben Group is handling DC outreach regarding legislation about student loan forgiveness, small business loans, technology and racial justice.
Its three-member CoC team includes Elliot Williams, who was assistant attorney general for legislative affairs during the Obama administration; Timothy Lynch, ex-senior Democratic counsel at the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee; and Rachel Motley, who interned for Ohio’s Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown.
Robert Raben, former counsel to Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, launched his shop in 2002 to drive public policy in a humane and sensible direction and to bring diversity and equity to the boardrooms, think tanks and corporations of America.

Having been active in civil rights since the day as a very young man I witnessed MLK make his Dream Speech, my concern here is that the goals indicated are quite appropriate but fails to include even mention of impoverished white families, entrepreneurs and workers as well, many of whom feel ignored in the overhwhelming attention elsewhere.
The comment will, of course, irritate some, but the reality should not be ignored because the question will arise from those who choose to ignore both.
