Join a radical acting class in San Francisco.

In class, we'll move. Do. Find actions. Most importantly, we will build pathways in Black-centered storytelling that can understand the harm and not perpetuate omissive or revisionist histories.

“What I’m trying to do with Unlock Her Potential is force America’s gaze,” Chang said. “There is so little mentorship for women of color. When people say that they have mentorship programs for women, I know what that means: it means a white women majority because white is the default in this country.”

Sophia Chang’s career is nothing, if not colorful. The Korean Canadian storyteller, screenwriter and author has a pilot in the works at FX for her original dramedy, tentatively titled “…

Lost art: Measuring COVID-19’s devastating impact on America’s creative economy

Of the 50 states, California will be hit hardest in terms of absolute losses for creative industries and occupations, followed by New York and Texas. But these are all large states; when we look at the share of losses, the biggest losses occur in smaller states, including Alaska, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Hawaii.

This study estimates the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on the creative economy, which is comprised of industries such as film, advertising, and fashion as well as creative occupations such as musicians, artists, performers, and designers.

NONPROFIT HONORED BY ASSEMBLYMEMBER David Chiu.

San Francisco, August 19, 2020 – Code Tenderloin is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2020 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblymember David Chiu.

Code Tenderloin is one of over a hundred other nonprofits that will be honored by their state senators and assemblymembers for their tremendous contributions to the communities they serve.

Code​ ​Tenderloin​ ​is​ ​a​ ​non-profit​ ​whose​ ​mission​ ​is​ ​to​ ​remove​ ​barriers ​preventing ​long-term​ ​employment. ​ ​We​ ​believe​ ​that​ ​homelessness,​ ​prior​ ​substance​ ​abuse, prior​ ​incarceration, ​​or​ ​other​ ​barriers​ ​should​ ​not​ ​define​ ​a​ ​person’s​ ​future​ ​nor​ ​disqualify the person ​from​ ​obtaining physical, mental, or economic well-being.

Receiving this honor comes at a moment when every community worker in the Tenderloin needs to be more than proud but motivated by our work. We need to shine as we build tomorrow. - Del Seymour, Founder, Code Tenderloin

“The pandemic and shelter-in-place orders of the last few months have put nonprofits – usually hidden in plain sight – in the spotlight,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits(CalNonprofits). “California Nonprofit of the Year is an opportunity for our elected officials to celebrate the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and for everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”


Additional Background
For the last five years, legislators from across California have chosen a Nonprofit of the Year in their district. Traditionally, Chair of the Assembly Select Committee on the Nonprofit Sector Assemblywoman Monique Limón (Santa Barbara) and CalNonprofits invited legislators and honorees to a celebratory luncheon on California Nonprofits Day. This year, the June luncheon was canceled in response to the Shelter-in-Place orders, but legislators have moved forward with honoring nonprofits doing great work in their districts.

According to “Causes Count,” a 2019 report commissioned by CalNonprofits, the nonprofit sector is the 4th largest industry in the state, employing more than 1.2 million people. Each year, California nonprofits generate more than $273 billion in revenue and bring in $40 billion in revenue from outside of California. The unpaid labor contributed by volunteers at nonprofits is equivalent to 330,000 full-time jobs every year.

Do you have additional questions, or need some help with this? Christina Dragonetti, Outreach and Communications Director at CalNonprofits, would love to help! Contact her at [email protected] or call 415-926-0668.

A lens to reimagine.

A meditation on CREATIVE STRATEGIES focused on messaging, impact, engagement, audience building, and outreach. A place for thoughtful and authentic voices to connect, collide, and converse. Through words, story and images we build upon or challenge our understandings, making us all wiser as a result. Through thoughtful curation, contextualization, & community -- we STRATEGIZE. We build customizable plans to implement for collaboration with small large , remote, and or mobile teams and application.We created INDIGO IMPACT with a common need to extend ideas, reach and work on imapactful projects. It took bodies and minds within the film industry. It took experience, marketing knowledge, real-time activism, frames of academia, and street smarts to add insights to the constantly changing media landscape. We convened two years ago on an island to brainstorm, deconstruct and reconstruct our vision for supporting autonomous filmmaking. Since those sandy think-tank days, we have committed to lifting up projects by having boots on the ground, creating a feedback/information loop, and morphing ourselves and our abilities to reach higher and higher vibrations.
