Be a Part of Building Change​

While Madison’s racial disparities are well documented, many people don’t realize this tale of two cities isn’t just keeping Black people from moving here. It’s also causing Madison-born children to leave for cities where they see opportunities to build wealth, access Black culture and to feel appreciated within their communities.

We need the Black community and white allies to work together to make our city more prosperous and welcoming. By the end of 2022, we are raising $36M to build The Center and support its long-term sustainability. Please join with the Black community and support this transformational project. Your investment will help build a vibrant home for the Black community that will share and promote Black excellence for many future generations.
