Committed to Racial Equity and Social Justice

We envision a world of equity, opportunity, and human decency. We will continue to do this work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, and until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.

As the needs of women and communities evolve, so will our work. We work to create safety, security, and economic and racial justice for everyone, until justice just is.
