Meet our Racial Justice and Equity Partners

We are excited to partner with these extraordinary organizations who are working tirelessly to build the power of BIPOC communities.

Today, we are pleased to share the names and work of partners who are shaping Humanity United’s effort to advance racial justice and equity. We are excited to partner with these extraordinary organizations who are working tirelessly to build the power of Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Color (BIPOC) communities and address the conditions and systems that have long harmed BIPOC lives. 

For many years, HU’s work has focused on the systems that contribute to human exploitation and violent conflict in locations around the world. However, we know that systemic and institutional racism—rooted in a culture of white supremacy—continues to be an inescapable reality of daily life for BIPOC communities, particularly here at home. We recognize that if we hope to contribute to a more just and equitable global society, we must work at home, as well as abroad. Over the next year, we will accompany these partners on their mission and advocate for their work, as they actively shape how HU supports racial justice and equity now and in the future.  

Systemic racism is deeply rooted and requires meaningful structural, community-based change and advocacy, in order for justice and equality to be achieved. We have found inspiration in these nine organizations and  the work they are doing within their communities. We invite you to learn more about their efforts, follow them on social media, and become an advocate for their work.

BreatheWithMe Revolution

We launched #breathewithme to turn protest into policy, to dismantle systemic racism, and create equity. The #breathewithme Revolution is a movement to create systemic change and real outcomes where Racial Justice meets Economic Justice. #breathewithme is a new, direct, engine of repair to unlock the truth and create economic autonomy and empowerment.  We create real world solutions for direct and sustainable impact.

We are pop culture experts and Emmy, Oscar, Sundance, Tribeca, Cannes Lions winners and nominees.  We are Activists, Producers, and Movement builders. We are an Artist platform and coalition with decades of reputable humanitarian solutions.  We are a team with a long history of social and racial justice action and collaboration with 500+ artists to use their platform for good purpose.  We are experts in direct economic solutions, movements that change policy, and public awareness through storytelling. Our team has raised and given away $100 million+ in direct, trackable charitable funding.


Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100)

BYP100 is a National, member-based organization of Black 18-35-year-old activists and organizers, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people. We do this through building a network focused on transformative leadership development, direct action organizing, advocacy, and political education using a Black queer feminist lens. Our work is generally centered on ending systems of anti-Blackness and emphasizing the urgency of protecting folks living on the margins of the margins, including women, girls, femmes, LGBTQ folk and the intersection between them. We approach our work through relational organizing which involves community building through a democratic and consensus building process. We stress training in grassroots organizing, fundraising, public policy debate, and electoral organizing. Lastly, we engage in digital content creation (video, graphics, blogging), and political education.

Capital B News

Capital B is a first-of-its-kind, Black-women-led local and national nonprofit news organization for Black Americans that launched January 31, 2022. Our mission is bold: we aim to offer journalism that will reach Black people who have been ignored, underrepresented, or represented poorly in mainstream news, while exposing the systems that perpetuate racial inequality and injustice in America.

DC Justice Lab

DC Justice Lab focuses on large-scale, evidence-based changes to the District of Columbia’s criminal legal system. In this first year, we helped publish three groundbreaking blueprints for transforming justice by decentering police, fully rewriting the criminal code, and decarcerating by half over ten years. We are committed to turning these proposals into policies and to centering the voices of people who are directly impacted by systems of punishment.

Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative

For twenty-five (25) years, Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative (FSFSC) has worked to strengthen children and families’ lives across Ward 8 Washington DC. Our community-driven approach allows us to coordinate alongside residents to address immediate needs while tackling the systemic causes of poverty, violence, and inequitable resource distribution. By developing impactful partnerships and the cultivation of critical resources and assets, we have worked to promote optimal economic, civic, and social well-being for thousands of children and families.

Latino Community Fund 

The Latino Community Fund (LCF Georgia) is a 501 c 3 organization with 40 members across Georgia advocating, mobilizing, building community, and investing in Latinx organizations and leaders so we can accelerate positive and equitable change for our diverse communities in the state.

Since 2017, LCF Georgia has raised and invested over $4,000,000 directly in community in the areas of civic engagement and advocacy, capacity building and COVID-relief. LCF Georgia is a Latina-led and Immigrant-led organization.


At ONE DC, our mission is to exercise political strength to create and preserve racial and economic equity in Shaw and the District. We seek to create a community in DC that is equitable for all. We, the people of ONE DC, envision the nation’s capital as a place where low income, poor, and immigrant communities are organized, educated, and trained to take action to create and preserve social and economic equity. ONE DC’s organizing work centers on popular education, community organizing, and alternative economic development projects.

In its history, ONE DC has distinguished itself as one of a few organizations in Washington, DC that moves beyond service provision to build sustainable community capacity and leadership so that low-income people of color can speak for themselves. ONE DC promotes leadership that does not tell others what to do but helps them take charge to build their abilities and skills.

Finally, ONE DC recognizes that leadership cannot exist without the support and power of the whole community. Central to ONE DC’s leadership style is the identification and dismantling of systemic influences such as racism, classism, and sexism that manifest both individually and institutionally.

Village Micro Fund 

Village Micro Fund is a social impact fund based in Atlanta, GA dedicated to helping small black businesses grow and scale through education, capital, and support. We have facilitated over $2 million in funding and have helped support over 300 businesses since 2014. We aim to prove that black and brown communities around the country can invest their skills, talents, and money to be the change they want to see in their neighborhoods.

Workers Center for Racial Justice

WCRJ is a grassroots organization fighting for Black liberation, and for a fair and inclusive society that benefits all people and leaves no one behind. We organize marginalized Black workers and families to address root causes of the high rates of unemployment, low-wage work and over-criminalization plaguing Black communities. To do this, we focus on direct action organizing, policy advocacy, leadership development and voter engagement at the municipal and state levels, with the objective of building a caring economy and society that allow Black people to reach their full human potential.

WCRJ was founded in 2012 by a group of unemployed and formerly incarcerated Black workers. We aim to eliminate barriers to sustainable, living-wage employment for Black workers; to strengthen economic security for Black families and communities; and to advance a progressive, pro-worker agenda that will lead to inclusion and prosperity for all marginalized workers. While a majority of our leaders are African American, our intended beneficiary demographic is comprised of individuals of the African diaspora who we broadly identify as Black Workers.
