About Us

Our Mission & Vision

AWỌ aspires to better understand the significance that color, class and culture have on individual stories being heard within society. With a focus on innovative programs and educational resources, we engage people of all shades to share, learn and create a more complete and accurate narrative of Huemanity. It is our Mission to create opportunities for those whose stories have been historically unheard or misrepresented. 

The Vision of AWỌ is to achieve a more inclusive and representative world by focusing on the unheard stories of individuals within society to build a more collective understanding about ourselves. We believe that a more complete story of Huemanity creates accurate cultural narratives within society and translates into more inclusion and opportunities in local schools, workplaces and government agencies.
