King County Equity Now is an ecosystem of over sixty Black-led, accountable community-based organizations, of Black elders, organizers, healers, youth, and families designing and implementing a new normal rooted in equity now. Our work is grounded in a love for Black peoples and improving on-the-ground living conditions, together.
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 a volunteer base of over 700 to drive and implement Black equity solutions. Our current major projects include:
We’ll be rolling out a Voting is Power initiative to register and engage all Black voters in King County in the following weeks. Look out for more.

We organize with the regional Black community to move in collective, and always advocate for transformative systems and policy change to materially advance Black equity now. Our recent wins include:
