$50,000 Goal

Founded in 2016, the Race and Gender Equity (RAGE) Project provides support to young people ages 13-26 in order to advance the wellbeing of Black youth locally and around the globe.  We also work to improve public interventions, policies and practices that impact the wellbeing of youth and communities of color.  In addition, we provide consulting and coaching rooted in frameworks of racial, gender & healing justice and restful leadership.

We create spaces that create change. 

We imagine: We envision a world where every young person has spaces where they can be free and well.

We build: We provide an infrastructure of support to individuals and communities working to create change; 

We dismantle: We work with individuals & organizations to disrupt antiblackness & white supremacy culture and create anti-racist spaces.

Giving Activity


We advance the wellbeing of Black youth through our pillars of healing, education, advocacy and research.


Donations of $25-50 a month will help provide cleaning supplies, books & journals, and equipment for the RAGE spaces. They will also help fund emergency basic needs requests for youth such as diapers, school supplies, and clothing.

Donations of $100 or more will be added to our #ragehealingfund and be used to provide a therapy session for Black youth, as well as stipends for youth leaders. Monthly donations provide ongoing support.

Donations of $1000 or more will be used as seed money for youth entrepreneurs. Our young people served almost 2000 students last year around the county and the state, through their healing, arts, education and leadership programming.

A donation of $50,000 or more will allow us to expand our youth co-working space into a large classroom used for educational purposes, digital media and content creation space.

Equity Statement

As a Black-led organization, equity is built into the fabric of who we are and what we do. We use an intersectional lens, rooted in Critical Race Theory and Restful Leadership, to guide our work.

We believe, in order to create sustainable change, the voices and recommendations of the most historically and systemically oppressed youth and communities must be at the center. As an organization, we recognize, and strive to increase, the power of Black youth and develop their ability to create change.
