Life is short, our choices matter.
We nurture our community and embolden leaders and organizations doing the work.
Our work is a megaphone for the changemakers on the ground. Like when we teamed up with The California Endowment to celebrate 10 years of grassroots work to build healthy communities.
We practice cultural humility and cultivate diversity.
In the pursuit of justice for all people, we consider ourselves forever learners. Explore how our teammates created “We All Belong” to reject hate and celebrate the API community.
We use our privileges to fight for equity.
We choose to invest our skills in communities that have been historically overlooked. Like encouraging Black and Latinx youth in California to vote via TikTok and Snapchat.
We know that justice and good work both take time.
The type of meaningful change we’re after doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why we consider ourselves an extension-of-staff team – We’re in it with you every step of the way.
We choose to invest in local actions to achieve global change.
As grassroots activists at heart, we know that change happens from the ground up. With Youthwill, we advocated (and won!) to get an Office of Child and Youth Success into the City of San Diego budget.
We believe in the potential of humankind to protect our people, communities and planet.
We see inherent goodness in people, and we know we are our own solutions. With Food Recovery Network, we support college students nationwide in turning surplus food that would otherwise end up in landfills into food for people experiencing hunger.
