Together We Rise :: Support Black & Brown Leaders, Artists, & Healers + Resources For Anti-Racism & Important Education


Like many of you, we are greatly feeling these times. There is a huge awakening happening that runs deep and feels somewhat multi-dimensional. Many are fighting for justice and for their lives right now. Many are leaning in to learn, grow, and do better. 

We value this global Moon Deck community and thank you for being here. We are sending love to each and everyone of you during these trying times, and trust that we will heal, grow and become stronger than ever through all of this - individually and collectively. We will continue to hold a vision at the forefront of our intentions and our actions for a healthy, beautiful, plentiful, and fair world for all. 

Please take a moment to explore, activate, and share this list below. We have highlighted ways you can donate and support black and brown centered organizations. We have also included links to learn from educators and leaders + support and follow artists, healers, and entrepreneurs. Thank you.
