WE are a group of 14 women artists elevating the stories of the others. Those of us who do not fit neatly in the consensus boxes, neatly in cultural categories.
WE are bi/multi-racial/cultural, immigrant or descendants of immigrants. We have come together, to question, to investigate, dig deep into what identity is within and without the construct and context of white—not in skin color, but as a system of oppression, a system we do not align ourselves with. In lieu of police brutality, calls for bans, for walls, we hope to provide an artistic platform for difficult discussions on the complexities of cultural identity in America to move us towards humanity. https://www.notwhitecollective.com
RE360 practices responsible property development. We understand that neighborhoods are built over generations by the characters that live, work, and do business in the community. Our mission is to work with communities to complement what already exists, rebuild what’s broken, and add what’s missing.
RE360 knows that honest investment in a neighborhood takes more than money. It takes time and energy required to build relationships and support the people that are doing good things. We’re committed as an organization to meaningful engagement. Below you can find some information about the programs that we support where you live. http://www.re360co.com/
