All of our work at the Akonadi Foundation is guided by our vision for a racially just society.
We dream of a day when all people, including youth and adults of color, enjoy the right to self-determination. When all peoples are respected and all cultures celebrated.
When every community is safe, healthy and sustainable. A day when everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
In service of this vision, we have adopted a simple but ambitious mission: to support the development of a powerful social change movement to eliminate structural racism and create a racially just society.
Akonadi Foundation's monthly Beloved Community Fund supports cultural and art events in Oakland celebrating communities of color.
We are now accepting applications for 2015 events.
The goal of the Arc Toward Justice Fund is to achieve equity for youth of color ages 14-24 in Oakland. LEARN MORE HERE
