Our Inspiration

Reimagine understands the overwhelming feelings of despair, rage, pain, anxiety, and disbelief experienced by communities of color during this time. We are honored to provide resources, events, and more, as we work with partnering organizations to be part of the solution, seek justice, help restore faith in each other, and heal in the shadows of so much loss. We are in the middle of an uprising and of mourning an unprecedented number of deaths of people of color to COVID-19 and to racially motivated violence. It is time to transform, reform, and then… heal.
