With this in mind, they seek to increase the capacity of community-based organizations working on a wide range of issues: from mass incarceration to gentrification, from health care to education and more.

Black Voters Matter (BVM) mission is to increase civic engagement and power building in predominantly Black communities.
JusticeAid leverages the community-building power of art and music to transform awareness into action in the fight against injustice.
