Ways you can help now - Racial Equity

Besa is on a mission to transform civic engagement. We believe in building an inclusive space
that bridges the gap between the needs of our community and people who want to give back.
Right now, there is an urgency in our community to provide volunteers with tools and
opportunities to stand in solidarity with the Black community.

Besa has developed a racial equity program focused on advocacy, access
and activation to help volunteers engage in anti-racism work. Within this
framework, programming will be intentional, inclusive and celebratory, with
the goal of helping to build a thriving and sustainable community for all.
