Thebigdivide.org is a non-profit 501c3 organization to help educate, bring awareness and focus on uplifting the voices of individuals and communities impacted by racially-motivated violence, discrimination, and oppression – which has risen to new heights in this post-election era. The impacted communities are tied inextricably to those experienced by other minority and marginalized communities: our oppression is interconnected and so must be our fight for freedom and justice. The Big Divide is committed to uprooting the social structures and systems that continue to divide us, by grounding our work in intersectional and cross-sectoral education and training. 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.
