Chelsea Community Action Day: We reached 2,500 Chelsea residents!

Now Hiring: Community Organizer

The Chelsea Collaborative is looking to hire a full-time community organizer to work closely with the Director of Organizing in overseeing the City-wide Tenants Association (CTA).

Chelsea Community Fund: 2017 Grant Guidelines Available

How could this be true? That morning alone there were 40 families with fear in their eyes outside of the Chelsea Collaborative before we even opened.

Know Your Rights! Protect you and your family during immigration raids

It is important for everyone to understand you do have rights when confronted or questioned by police or other officials. You have the right to remain silent, to request to speak to a lawyer, and to make a phone call if arrested. If the police or immigration come to your door, they must have a warrant and you have the right to not open the door until you see the warrant with your name on it.
