The Committees of Correspondence Education Fund, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation founded in 1994. The Fund sponsors educational projects, such as forums, seminars, classes, cultural events, and workshops. The goal is to educate the general public about social justice issues including, but not limited to, the expansion of participatory democracy, the achievement of full employment, the right to decent and affordable housing, the right to join a union, the right to quality healthcare for all, quality multicultural public education, voting rights, ending police violence, and the alleviation of poverty.
In response to young activists stating that they wanted more political understanding of the social justice issues they are confronting, the ED Fund launched a new project – The Carl Bloice Institute for Socialist Education. The Institute held a two-day school for young activists in October 2014 in New York City.

Order now! This unique study guide outlines the ongoing struggle for democracy in the U.S. It pinpoints specific historic junctures where the two dominant and interconnected pro-democracy forces in the country converged – the working class and the African American people. The readings and discussions are an attempt to locate these junctures, reflected as periods of mass activity, in order to draw important lessons from the past. The discussions culminate with a detailed discussion of the Democracy Charter, a document created by Jack O’Dell, a longtime activist and theoretician of the democratic movement.
