What We Do.

At One Small Change we bring people together to amplify community voices and inspire transformation.  

We are a catalyst for sustainable impact and growth, helping people tap into programs and resources, and supporting people to connect to them.

Everything we do revolves around bringing people together to amplify and catalyze systemic transformation upon a foundation of social justice.  One Small Change helps organizations successfully transform to meet the needs of the communities that they serve.  

Our intention is for organizations to thrive!

Capacity Building.

We help social justice organizations deliver their mission more effectively and create internal and external sustainability—facilitating community based initiatives to connect schools, businesses, government organizations, and faith leaders.

Learning Community.

We are committed to creating a space for all of us to be a community of learners, recognizing that we are on a journey—there is no end point.

Dinner with Friends.

Dinner with Friends is inspired by the Chicago Dinners Dialogue Project—informal conversations among small groups of community leaders from different racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds is a vital step in bridging racial divides.
