King County Equity Now's work is grounded in a love for all Black peoples. We build community power and improve on-the-ground living conditions, together. KCEN is supported by an ecosystem of Black-led, accountable community-based organizations, of Black elders, organizers, healers, youth, and families designing and implementing a new normal rooted in equity now.
We move with regional Black communities to advocate for transformative systems and policy change to advance Black equity now across measurable metrics, including wealth, land and homeownership, mortality rates, etc. With community and collective, recent wins include:
We leverage our political and organizing network, strategic communications strategy, and digital presence to uplift the work of Black communities on-the-ground (i.e., Black community members, youth, families, and creatives; Black-owned businesses, Black-led organizations, and more) to ensure that Black vision and brilliance has the necessary visibility and platform to implement measurable equity.
We are building a nation-leading, Black-led and -centered research institute that uses culturally fluid processes, methodologies, and practices to center and uplift Black voices and perspectives. With our vast and deep ecosystem, we facilitate and conduct Black-led research at an unparalleled size, scale, and depth. We leverage our community's brilliance and volunteer base to drive, support, and implement Black equity solutions.
KCEN has filed for 501(c)(4) status.
