What We Do...

Melanin Uprising does the work to dismantle the psychological impact of ageism, white supremacy, patriarchy and capitalism by creating space for Black youth to critically think about systems of oppression and find a solution. We had to believe we can organize a protest, speak about youth issues on the radio, lead a community service project and/or facilitate a conversation on racial justice in order for us to do it. We are collectively recognizing that there is a problem and are beginning to believe in our ability to solve it. Melanin Uprising exists to create opportunities for youth to actualize their power and believe they can do anything they set their minds to.

Your donations will go directly to funding our workshops, outreach and community service projects. 

Join us at our bi-weekly open meetings, collaborate with us on a community initiative or workshop series, or volunteer as an ally. 

To create spaces for youth to discuss, process, and combat oppressive forces that cause trauma in the Black community.
