Why Give

C2i2 seeks to ignite change by building a research center that is committed to racial and social justice with an orientation focused on community impact. C2i2’s impact objectives include the intent to support the specific needs of Black and Queer scholars; to engage with the greater Los Angeles community through education, advocacy, and art; to inform and support state, local, and federal policymakers; and provide change driven STEM professionals in the field with the language and tools to challenge injustice and the status quo from the inside out.
