United by Equity

About us

We are a grassroots organization promoting equity, justice, and inclusion.

Our organization grew out of a mass mobilization and nationwide voting rights movement demanding that elected officials increase access to civic engagement and protect civil rights by providing the necessary tools to end poverty, racism, and intersectional injustice through policies, including reparations and truth efforts promoting accurate equity nationwide.

We began our journey in collaboration with the legislative efforts of various members of the United States Congress.

In that spirit, our organization seeks to advance sustainable strategies and solutions that promote and provide equity for all, especially focused on minority and marginalized people negatively and intensely affected by perpetual divisive and ineffective policies, systems, and institutions.

Our goals

Increase voter registration, civic engagement and participation
Improve education system
Increase public awareness of local, state, and national efforts and policies to achieve a more equitable society
