Center for Third World Organizing

The Center for Third World Organizing (CTWO, pronounced “C-2”) is a racial-justice organization dedicated to building a social-justice movement led by people of color. We were established in 1980 as a training and resource center that promotes and sustains direct-action organizing in communities of color in the United States. CTWO provides organizer training programs, including the model Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program (MAAP) and builds an active network of organizations and activists of color to achieve racial justice in its fullest dimensions.
