We are curious, humble, restless, and undaunted.

Our team is made up of strategists, organizers, researchers, designers, and facilitators. We hail from diverse backgrounds—including arts and culture, grassroots advocacy, journalism and media, public policy, and global development—that enrich our perspective and strengthen our work.
