It's about Community

Making Change’s GOAL is to spark broad community interest and foster conversations around inclusion and diversity.  We have a specific focus on raising awareness and educating and exposing people to the Black community, Black culture, and issues around anti-Black racism. We are building community inclusion and togetherness through activities, allyship, participation and discussion. 

Through our year-long initiatives, programs and educational sessions, including during Black History Month, Making Change embraces the community values that connect us as people, bring us closer together, and encourage us to support each other.

It’s really about community togetherness.

Making Change is a start-up not-for-profit organization of community volunteers, led by a community of Black women. Their goal is to spark broad community interest and foster conversations around inclusion and diversity, with a focus on Black culture, Black community and issues around anti-Black racism.


Launched in 2019,  it has grown to include a small, but mighty, team of  dedicated volunteers. Together, they plan and coordinate activities,  projects and events in the community. Collaborations and partnerships are vital to  their continued community impact. 

Making Change also provides anti-Black racism educational workshops, presentations and sessions.
