CTWO is a 38 year-old training and resource center that promotes and sustains direct-action organizing in communities of color in the United States. CTWO's programs include training of new and experienced organizers, including the well-known Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program (MAAP); establishing model multi-racial community organizations; and building an active network of organizations and activists of color to achieve racial justice in its fullest dimensions. Over 500 MAAP alumni and 4000 Community Action Training (CAT) graduates engage in social justice work around the country.
