Our mantra at The Roots Initiative is, “When you intentionally and authentically invest in Black youth, they will then have everything they need to be the next set of leaders to drive radical change.” Our programming, co-collaborated with our young leaders, is grounded in and promotes the principles of cultural identity restoration, social and emotional wellness, building collective responsibility, and most importantly, joy. Coupled with their genius, we believe these tenets equip them with the hope, vision, resistance and power to chart the course towards liberated communities.
