We believe that change happens

one conversation, one person,

one relationship at a time.

Studio ATAO is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that creates educational tools, resources, and spaces for individuals and organizations to advance systems-based change through a social justice lens and the all-affected principle*.

Our vision is a world where all people can realize their power to secure equitable and inclusive change.

What We Do

For Individuals

Educational Initiatives

We develop educational content and create brave spaces that encourage individuals to become change agents in their communities. We use open, honest dialogue to engage critically with social movements and the world around us.

We synthesize insights from the communities most impacted by social, organizational, and political challenges into publicly available toolkits and resources used to implement action-oriented change from the ground-up.
