About Us

VISION
Be Present, Inc. is a diverse network of people willing to risk being different with one another, our families, communities, workplaces and organizations.

We are committed to a process that builds personal and community well being on the strength of self-knowledge rather than on the distress of oppression.

Because we believe that enduring progressive change begins with and is sustained by persistent personal growth, we bring to people a model for individual and organizational effectiveness which replaces silence with information, assumptions with a diversity of insights, and powerlessness with a sense of personal responsibility.

MISSION
Be Present, Inc. is a national community-based organization engaged in capacity building, advocacy, and organizing/base building for progressive social justice. We partner with organizations doing the long-term work of movement building within the fields of philanthropy, human and civil rights, public policy, advocacy, organizing, education, and community development.

BE PRESENT EMPOWERMENT MODEL
This replicable leadership model teaches how to use a systematic process to effectively change the dynamics of power and address how the effects of racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, and all forms of oppression often disconnect people from their vision, thereby halting their ability to expose systemic inequalities, confront institutional practices, initiate policy reform, reallocate crucial resources, and foster sustainable change.

This proven conduit for equity and justice builds movements grounded in relationships; stimulates open dialogue and authentic participation; and fosters diverse leaders able to sustain effective alliances focused on institutional change.
