The Hub is currently getting a little re-vamp. In the meantime, until its more organized, I have a google sheet with resources that are for black and brown people.
These resources are categorized but not limited to: Mental health, BIPOC agriculture, education, events & organizing, and cultural preservation.
If you have additional resources for black and brown folx that would be beneficial to The Hub, please reach out to me via the contact page with the subject title “THE HUB”.
Families of Color
“Families Of Color Seattle (FOCS) is a non-profit organization that is connecting parents to build a loving community of families of color. Founded in 2013, FOCS is led by mothers of color. Our programs include parent groups, community resources and events, and racial equity consulting. We specialize in community dialogues, workshops, and consulting on race, family engagement, and anti-bias education. We equip parents and educators with tools to talk with children on identity, racism, inclusion & equity, and trauma-informed practices.”
Oshun Swim School
“Through Afro-Indigenous centered swim and water based workshops, Oshun Swim School offers BIPOC womxn and non-binary people a safer space to explore our relationship with water and grow into embodied, joyful swimmers. We support students to gain swim skills, and also to heal personal and generational water trauma, build community, and practice embodied mindfulness.
This work is a response to the call for environmental justice for frontline communities who have been historically excluded from swim environments, yet who bear the brunt of the climate crisis, and for whom swim skills are most essential.”
Black Farmers Collective
“We are a two acre urban agriculture farm run by the Black Farmers Collective, a distributed network of cutting-edge black farmers and growers through the greater Seattle area. We believe the key to a more sustainable, equitable future for communities of color required eliminating food scarcity and undoing the commoditization of the food industry.”
“Nurturing Roots is a community farming program focused on educating youth & community members on healthy food choices. Creating community through gardening”

Wa Na Wari creates space for Black ownership, possibility, and belonging through art, historic preservation, and connection.
