Who we

We are an expanding group from different backgrounds, origins, walks of life, identities, and day jobs.

What we have in common is our belief that we can harness 2026 as a positive turning point to reckon, to honor, to heal. And to build the America that hasn’t fully been—but still yearns to be. Please join us.
