Our vision


We strive to create a world in which no community is left voiceless. We believe all community members, from children to adults, should be civically educated and have proper access to voting practices; thereby being powered to disrupt systems.


Our mission


We work to close the opportunity gaps and improve life outcomes by amplifying issues at the intersection of social justice, public health, educational inequities, and civic engagement. We empower communities to reshape harmful policies and demand social justice. We highlight, uplift, and restore the narratives of Black and Brown voices.


Our statement on equity


We’re committed to building and sustaining equitable and socially just systems that support all community members’ growth and development, especially those who are traditionally disenfranchised due to factors including race, ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status.
