Our Model of Change
activates civic leaders for social impact.
We equip artists of different racial and religious backgrounds with the skills, experience, and support they need to become civically engaged on both the local and national level.
We embed these trained artists with grassroots organizations, national institutions, and social movements to amplify their impact, providing livelihoods to artists in the process.
We leverage our strategic location in Washington, DC, to organize new coalitions, access greater resources, and build larger platforms to ignite social change across diverse issues.
