About Us

Who We Are

WE are a BIPOC-led multiracial community of well-being and equity architects.

We are community builders–community leaders and health leaders, urban planners and farmers, social change leaders and business leaders, policymakers and economic development professionals, youth and elders.

Together, we are building the social and vital conditions we all need to thrive on a foundation of racial and economic justice.

What People Are Saying ABOUT US

“[WE in the World] is very big on centering community voice – folks with lived experience…. They do an amazing job centering communities doing their own work, who would appreciate more capacity in doing that work. 

“[At WE in the World] diversity isn’t just a label but it’s actually a practice, it’s honored.”

“A disruptive partner working daily with us to bridge those systems that have been disconnected through inequity and also to insert reparative practices.”

“An organization that challenges a corrupt system and makes them heed the wrong, whether it’s an inside job or whether it’s with race.”

“We were grantees, but we were designers and we actually got to shape a movement….Nobody’s mentoring one person or another. We’re all learning and we’re all transforming, and it takes all of us.

They recognize that… All of us have lived experience in some way, shape or form…. And they create space and they work towards us being better as a team, as a whole, as a network so that we can be better in the work that we do.

“It’s not accidental that people feel invited here – there’s craft or energy paid to creating space that people feel welcomed.

“Compassion and caring and it’s not about [WE in the World] – it’s about trust and relationship and partnership with communities.
