This project will save us $3,926 , allowing us to showcase the voices, stories and vision of our community as we offer free cultural & healing programs.

What We Need

  • An assessment of Organization's IT infrastructure including costs, speed, reliability and security
  • Advice on various IT services and the cost-benefit associated with each option
  • Potentially more efficient and secure services

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on having secure email and cloud services. Without your help, we cannot achieve the distance & expertise needed. Your skills will empower us to change systems & build community assets, equity & power.

What We Have In Place

We currently have inventory of our current IT infrastructure which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have access to our IT infrastructure and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

Despite the disparities people of color face, our communities are strong, beautiful & powerful. We focus on personal and community healing, connection and love. Resurfacing cultural wisdom and ritual reminds us of who we are and what we can do. We create wholeness and prosperity, for ourselves and our descendants.
