UpTogether is a systems change organization that recognizes that poverty is created by systems, rooted in racism and perpetuated by false views of people considered “poor.” We are working to make the U.S. a place where all people are seen and invested in for their strengths and are able to build power, reinforce their autonomy, and drive their own economic and social mobility.
