The Equity Project is committed to advancing racial equity through radical access. We believe every community has the right to transformative trauma-informed services, spaces that inspire and the resources needed to reach our full human potential.
Kensington is a racially and economically segregated neighborhood whose youth are experiencing some of the most profound challenges in the city. In addition to historic divestment, poverty and the legacy of intergenerational racism, our community is at the epicenter of the opioid epidemic exposing young and old, alike, to unprecedented levels of violence, trauma, and suffering. Compounding the impact of this adverse environment is the lack of access to services and resources that support resilience in youth of color. The Equity Project is seeking visionary volunteers to join us in radically reimagining racial equity. We are creating a space that is transformative in its design, equipped with state of the art of the technology, digital music equipment, art and sensory tools where youth of color can freely gather, explore their creativity, develop meaningful connections, heal from trauma and build resilience.
