Our mission

Our mission is to face, denounce and dismantle racism in a holistic way and work with others to create a community that is whole, inclusive and just.

Our vision

The Big Divide is a non-profit organization – our objective is to implement a cross-sector movement that significantly transforms race and racism in our lifetime. The 2016 post-election environment has undoubtedly contributed to our divided nation, where racially-charged crimes, anti-immigrant sentiment, and xenophobia are at a record high. We are committed to building the infrastructure and resources to organize and mobilize the communities we serve, to take action and to stand in solidarity with all marginalized and disenfranchised communities. Our approach in creating a racial equity balance blends strategies for healing and equity by providing rapid response support to communities, organizations and institutions grappling with incidents of racism.
