Promoting Inclusion and Equity for Marginalized Minorities
ECC is a 501(c)(3) US-registered tax-exempt public charity (Tax ID 87-1305350). We are also a charity registered at the New York State Attorney General's Office (ID: 48-53-40). Founded in response to surging racism and xenophobia against immigrants and people of color in 2019, ECC mobilizes volunteers from across the US to carry out social equity projects and civil rights advocacy campaigns to combat bigotry. We are devoted to serving all disadvantaged groups: no one should ever experience social exclusion, discrimination, or violence because of the color of one's skin.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, ECC assisted over 87,000 minorities with language barriers in gaining equitable access to potentially life-saving medical care. ECC's efforts were featured on the front page of Fox 5 New York and recognized by Chelsea Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.
ECC is also dedicated to speaking up against bigotry in any form and to raising public awareness of the need for minority inclusion. As part of our awareness campaign, ECC has interviewed 26th Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, 26th US National Security Advisor General H. R. McMaster (ret.), Nobel laureate Esther Duflo, and bestselling author Chelsea Clinton. Since the launch of Inclusion Advocate, ECC interviews and articles have been viewed by more than 5 million unique visitors.
To advocate and push for social justice for minorities in our society, for everyone deserves an equal chance at a good life.
