Educate, Engage, Activate

MLK Day of Community Service 2023 was the most community-centric and community-engaging program that we have ever run. You can read more about the day here

In spite of these successes, unless we meet our funding goals, the fate of future community programs like the MLK Day of Service and PRIDEfest remains uncertain.

Please help us reach our Fall Appeal goal today. Upcoming programs–like May’s AAPI Celebration, PRIDEfest, and the Lived Experience Survey–are dependent on your support. Give here!
