Minds Matter of Los Angeles stands in solidarity with the Black community. The violence against black people needs to stop. Systemic racism must be eradicated. Educational and economic opportunities must be universally accessible, not dependent on one’s zip code. We know our strength comes from our diversity, from amplifying voices that fight to be heard elsewhere, and from calling each other to more truth and love.
Join us today by becoming a volunteer and help shape a young life or make a donation in support of our work. Together, we can take action to dismantle inequality and continue to bridge the education gap.
Minds Matter transforms the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for success in college and beyond.
