You may be new to @HopeMob and wondering what we’re all about, or you may have heard of @HopeMob in the past and wonder why we’ve been silent for a little while.
Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. Let’s unpack this.
First and foremost, @HopeMob is a place where campaigns committed to dismantling systemic racism and advancing the work of leaders and communities of color are connected with financial and tangible resources. With support from Pure Charity, @HopeMob has flourished in realizing its dynamic and unique vision.
We are pleased to announce this vision has come to fulfillment in Leroy Barber.
Barber has taken on the directorial role of @HopeMob, bringing a completely new Advisory Board and mission with him. Barber, co-founder of The Voices Project, describes his commitment to @HopeMob and its future as being fundamental to the work that he is called to do:
“I would like my name and legacy to be affiliated with hope and I have seen hope in some of the hardest places around he world—places where you wouldn’t expect it to be so strong. I’m driven to highlight hope. Hope found in a hopeless place is contagious. It’s pure and powerful. I want to be connected to that. I want to learn from, support, and resource that kind of hope and gather others to be a part.”
– Leroy Barber
We are excited, expectant, and eager to see justice realized here and now. We are everyday organizers. We are grassroots change makers. We are @HopeMob.
