Announcing our 2019 Cohort Organizations!

Our 2019 Seattle-based Capacity Building Cohort is beginning this month!

The Capacity Building Cohort is the flagship program of NAC, offering knowledge, skills, and access to a network of inspiring peers navigating similar challenges and hopes in their work for equity and social justice in their community. We have been honored to support organizations in achieving their aspirations, not only through the consistent support of trusted coaches who recognize and respect community wisdom, but through the transformative power of the collective and what we can accomplish together.

Thank you to all the organizations who applied for this year’s cohort. We were blown away by the applicants who inspired us with their work and hope many will re-apply for future cohorts.

This year, we are pleased to announce that the cohort will consist of the following organizations:

  • The Be Good Project Foundation
  • Cierra Sisters*
  • GenPRIDE
  • Lake City Collective
  • Movimiento Afrolatino Seattle
  • Pacific Asian Empowerment Program
  • Somali Bantu Community Services of Washington*
