Throughout the year, Curate will organize and/or host events around pressing social issues in efforts to engage with broader publics toward building broader and deeper coalitions.

We have a number of social justice advocates and community organizers on our team who work on issues of inequity, including those related to immigration, education, housing, sex trafficking, and race.
