Our Mission

There is a need for positive change.

Both Sides of the Conversation is a 501c3 nonprofit that was created to provide resources through effective conversations that empower our people.

Through open dialogue, we explore the challenges and barriers that are faced within our Black and Brown communities to connect, reflect and develop ways of healing together.

We focus on listening and providing resources because we believe all underserved communities have one thing in common, the need for positive change.
