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.
