East Colfax Community Collective (EC3) is a community-driven multicultural socio-economically diverse advocacy organization comprised of residents, local businesses and nonprofits, and allies.

What We Do

IMMEDIATE RELIEF

We provide direct assistance to neighbors and businesses at risk of displacement through our Housing Assistance Campaign, our East Colfax Legal Clinic, and our East Colfax Small Business Relief Fund.

HOUSING SOLUTIONS

We advocate for permanent solutions to the housing crisis grounded in the vision of our community.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

We create programs and events to build leadership, community connection, and pride in East Colfax.

SMALL BUSINESS SUPPORT

We advocate for small businesses through support with licensing, permitting and landlord issues, among others.

COALITION BUILDING

We build power at the local, regional, and citywide level to advance equitable housing policy and community centered decision making.

POLICY ADVOCACY

We ensure that our communities have a voice in all policy spaces that impact our neighborhood.

CORE values

Community Driven

We believes that outcomes are always better when those who are directly impacted make the decisions.

POWER-BUILDING

We believe that everything we do must be in the service of building power for our community.

EQUITY

We value policies and practices that recognize that we do not all start from the same place and are designed to address the unique lived experiences and needs of each community.

INNOVATION

We believe that the solutions to displacement are bold, new ideas that are rooted in our community.

LANGUAGE JUSTICE

We respect the voices of our community and believe that everyone has the right to speak for themselves and be heard in the language they choose.

SOLUTION-ORIENTED

We believe we must do more than state the problem, we must drive the solution.
