Who we are
Our approach is
We believe in the democratic process. All strategic action is a product of the collective brain trust of our members through a voting process.
Transparency & Integrity
We believe that honesty and integrity are critical to the effectiveness of our organization. Financial and organizational records related to our work are made available to our members to review.
We believe in holding ourselves, officers, and elected officials accountable for their actions or inaction.
We recognize and honor the intersections of identities and experiences within our community and welcome the support of allies from all diverse backgrounds.
We believe in the power of education to create systemic change and serve as an educational space for our members and the community.
Mental health and Personal Safety
We value the importance of mental health and personal safety in the fight for justice and provide resources to prioritize both.
We believe that the power of one compounds exponentially when joined with the power of others. We work together to create a wave of strategic action across the country. We pool our resources, both human and monetary, to create momentum in our advocacy and education efforts.
We prioritize prevention over reaction in ending police violence and reducing harm in the Black community.
