We CAREE...

CAREE (Citizens Advocating for Racial Equity and Equality) is a 501C3 nonprofit organization of community stakeholders advocating for equality through fair opportunities for growth and development in minority communities.

Areas Of Focus

CAREE focuses on six primary areas that we believe impact minority and underserved communities the most.

Voting

If 8% more minorities would have voted, the election would have turned out differently.

Social determinants of health disparities have been a constant in marginalized communities and are being exacerbated by the pandemic. 

Financial Literacy
