Ella Baker Center for Human Rights

Ella Baker Center is named after a brilliant, Black hero of the civil rights movement.

We believe the best way to honor Ms. Baker’s legacy is to inspire people to imagine new possibilities, lead with solutions, and engage communities to drive positive change.

At EBC, we build the power of Black, Brown, and poor people to create solutions for some of the biggest drivers of injustice today: policing and prisons.

Ask your attorney or estate planner about adding EBC to your planned giving.
