Someone Who Knows
Way too often issues in our community go unnoticed. This happens when we see a lack of awareness and education about the culture, community, and lived experience of a specific group of people. This happens when issues in our community are misinterpreted or misunderstood. As a result, BWCI is finding a way to create user-friendly resources that are more culturally competent and align with the needs of our community.
