A Force for Healing & Advocacy

We Are 240+ BIPOC-led Nonprofits Uniting Statewide

As Black, Indigenous, and People of Color nonprofit executive directors across Washington state, we are joining in solidarity to promote wellness and restore resources in our communities. Through healing and advocacy, our multicultural, cross-sector collaborative works to nourish our collective well-being and generate shared abundance. Together, with you, we will recreate the fabric of society.

Our 2023 Legislative Agenda

We can join together to Invest in BIPOC Futures! The world as it has existed has not served Black and Brown people. The BIPOC ED Coalition is here to create the container to change that world. Our legislative agenda is one way we do it. Learn about our priorities and take action with us.

Announcing Sabbatical Leadership Awardees

Were thrilled to announce $1.37M in sabbatical and respite grants to support 32 BIPOC leaders and their nonprofit organizations in healing and renewal. Sabbaticals are vital for our individual and collective wellness.

Calling In Philanthropy and Other Allies
