Our mission is to ritualize consistent and urgent action to dismantle systems of white supremacy and save all Black lives. We build and mobilize power by making multimedia education, grassroots organizing, and consistent community care accessible to all. 

We do this through:

Base-Building: We make revolutionary resources, safe spaces, and direct actions accessible (across language, disability, cultures, generations, interests and more!) to build and preserve community power to claim the social change necessary to save all Black lives.

Leadership development: Our community organizers co-create with our board of directors to meaningfully connect our community through our initiatives and resources to make room for growth, trust, and experimentation as we collectively seek to transform the world around us and achieve systemic change

Consistent and Urgent Action: We ritualize direct actions to Educate, Motivate, Unionize, and Mobilize all in our community to dismantle white supremacy and co-create new equitable systems in its place
