Social Justice

Advancing human rights, racial, gender, economic & environmental justice

Our commitment to social justice, diversity, and inclusion informs every aspect of our work—knowing greater social benefits are achieved by accounting for and addressing power differentials.

We partner with organizations working to address the systemic barriers that create inequalities. Our clients are working to advance racial and economic justice to address gender-based disparities with a focus on the needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized populations.

We support organizations along a spectrum of readiness from just beginning to consider disparities in their efforts to recalibrating their work to placing equity firmly in the center of their organizational mission.

Along with our clients we develop long-term solutions to remove systemic barriers and develop a proactive, strategic approach to advance targeted solutions.

In working with us, they brought a deep appreciation of our members’ passion for their work and a dedication to social justice.”

“TCC Group’s experience in education, grantmaking, and coalition building—and, importantly, its commitment to social justice—have figured crucially in helping us move toward meaningful change.”

“I saw TCC Group’s commitment to social impact from the beginning. From our very first conversation, they understood the `{`Emergent Fund`}` model because they were thinking in terms of social change and so were we.”

How We Can Help

Strategy

Sound strategy is grounded in a deep understanding of your core purpose, capacity to achieve change, and collaborative relationships with others. From diverse perspectives on your social justice work, we help you clarify your mission, vision, and values—then we collaboratively chart the course to realize your goals.

Evaluation & Learning

We’re often engaged to evaluate social justice work. All our evaluation services take a customized approach—using a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods—to harness evaluation and learning for your diverse stakeholders. We provide actionable insights and build internal capacity to carry on learning efforts.

Capacity Building

Along with strong leadership, sound management, effective tools, adaptability, and a values-driven culture, accomplishing your goals takes collaborative muscle. We help you identify your strengths and opportunities for growth to determine how you can best partner with others to achieve your shared aims.

Grantmaking & Foundation Management

We work with funders on a wide variety of giving programs. Our experienced staff members design, develop, implement, and manage grantmaking efforts. We help you administer grants efficiently, communicate with grantees and grantseekers, and align your grantmaking with other funder objectives.

Initiative Design & Implementation

Tackling complex issues surrounding social justice demands integrated action, informed by deep listening, intentional engagement, critical analysis, and bold approaches. To help you achieve your goals for lasting impact, we design integrated initiatives: strategic endeavors that meaningfully choreograph multiple program components and are responsive to community needs.

Stakeholder Engagement

Relationships are essential for impact. We help you build authentic, expansive, and productive relationships with the stakeholders critical to your work to advance social justice. We begin with stakeholder mapping, plan your strategy for engagement, identify the touchpoints for ongoing and fruitful partnership, and bolster feedback loops.

Strategic Communication

At all stages of social justice work—designing a complex initiative, embarking on an organizational change in direction, or creating a suite of materials—strategic communication is essential. We create communication plans that make your voice heard, identifying your messages, messengers, audiences, and channels.

Governance

An engaged and effective board helps ensure you’re achieving your mission. We work with social justice organizations of all sizes, helping define the role of the board and advising on issues of its composition, structure, tenure, performance, and sustainability.

Theory of Change, Indicators & Measures Development

Surface the hypotheses and assumptions underpinning your work. How will you get from here to your goals? We lay out the steps by which your work will lead to impact in the social justice landscape. Articulating a Theory of Change and indicators of success are essential to establishing a shared vision for priorities, evaluation, partnerships, and resources.
