CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Our organization provides education on how to be a civically engaged member of San Francisco.

Mission

Our mission is to civically engage Black and other disenfranchised communities through cultural upliftment, bridging social gaps, historic preservation, economic development, personal growth and artistic empowerment.

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Many San Franciscans, particularly in marginalized communities, do not know how to participate in and improve their community and overall city. Our organization provides education on how to be a civically engaged member of San Francisco.

BRIDGING SOCIAL GAPS

Our organization welcomes and encourages the social diversity of age, race, and background. This unique dynamic allows us to embrace and utilize a holistic approach to our work.

CULTURAL UPLIFTMENT

By bringing corner streets, senior centers, and public housing developments together in the Western Addition / Fillmore community, our culturally enriching events allow community members to explore their culture and build relationships with each other.

HISTORIC PRESERVATION

We are driven to preserve the heritage, legacy, landmarks and history of African Americans in Fillmore and the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Our goal is to ensure the growth of marginalized communities like the Western Addition / Fillmore. We advocate for economic growth through workforce development, strong business alliances, entrepreneurship opportunities and marketing commercial corridors.

PERSONAL GROWTH

Our referral-based services use community outreach at our events and activities as a starting point to engage community members that need direct services. An initial intake form is given to potential mentees, then followed up with a referral form in which the mentee will indicate what areas of service they need referrals for.

ARTIST EMPOWERMENT

Artist centered approach to supporting emerging and underrepresented artists through innovative programming, experimentation and collaboration. We create opportunities to support economic and cultural development through cultural activities and facilitate connections between artists and the broader stakeholders in urban planning.

GET INVOLVED

Support from community members like you has been critical to some of our most important and innovative work, from the renovation of the Fillmore Min Park, the activation of the Fillmore Heritage Center and the first ever commemoration in San Francisco of the tragedy in Jonestown.
