Support our Work

Did you know only 16% of nonprofits are led by BIPOC, and even less by women of color? Correspondingly, BIPOC-led nonprofits also receive significantly less grant and donor funding than their white-led counterparts. As Echoing Green and Bridgespan group report, "Disparities by leader race repeatedly persist even when taking into account factors like issue area and education levels."

As a small BIPOC-led and staffed nonprofit, we know what we're up against. We see every year that we are able to continue operating as a reason for celebration and motivation to keep on working towards change from the bottom-up. 

Our goal is to build a future where everyone is empowered with the tools and space to heal, learn, and act against systemic oppression and injustice. With your support, we're making it possible for even more people to join our movement and rise — all together at once
