Making Change Possible

The Village Project Collective provides access to quality of life opportunities by providing resource information to members of society that are ostracized, penalized, and disenfranchised based on whom they love, how they look, or their economic status. 

While our goal is to empower the BIPOC LGBTQ+ community, we welcome others that can benefit from our focus on removing systemic structures designed to arrest citizens development.

Throughout the years, we gained our rights through hard work, sacrifice, and allyship. As our country regresses, the challenges to our community are far from over, and our rights are at stake. Our community needs are significant, and many of our challenges are hate-fueled. We understand that there is power in numbers. We are building a safe space inclusive of a welcoming environment. We are more powerful together. We are focused and energized, and we welcome those interested in helping us lift our community. We focus on such needs as AIDS/HIV testing, PrEP, financial literacy, access to opportunities, and other quality of life resources.

Our Mission: The Village Project Collective strives to enhance the quality of life for the BIPOC LGBTQ+ community and others. Commitment, Understanding and Innovation, and passion are the values central to the Village Project Collective mission.  We understand that community matters and we challenge ourselves to think creatively as we focus on fundamental issues that systemically plague BIPOC LGBTQ+ persons. We believe that change is possible when we put our hearts and minds to it.

Issues facing a number of Black LGBTQ+ community members are rooted in the same inequities that sis gendered Black people and others encounter but often to a higher degree. Such disparity exists in the workplace and health care systems. Violence visited upon Black transgender bodies continues to increase with death often as the outcome. Such trauma requires a support system that helps to close economic gaps by providing access to education and housing. We aim to close the gap between poverty and access to opportunities.

As we continue to grow our community network, we are mindful that fear campaigns distract from the real issues that increase the quality of life opportunities at the core of society. Our goals are lofty, and we look forward.
