We are a group of close friends living in Brooklyn, NY. We want to use our collective knowledge, networks, interests, and assets to help marginalized populations in New York City/Brooklyn access empowerment opportunities.
We formed our circle to see what it would look like for a group of friends to leverage our shared interests, assets, and expertise toward making our local Brooklyn/New York City community a better place.
We seek to support organizations that:
- Are run by people who they seek to engage, and/or who include a significant proportion representing those they seek to engage in both their professional and volunteer leadership;
- Are local to Brooklyn or New York City;
- Address "transformational" change by seeking to influence lives, policy and culture - not simply addressing immediate need; and
- Promote worthiness and joy among those who they support.
