Brand
Promise

CommunityBuild Ventures is a pro-Black, solution-focused firm committed to eliminating racial disparities by developing powerful, impactful, and racial equity-driven leaders and organizations. We realize racial equity requires transformational relationships.

Our promise is to help leaders and organizations learn about and practice racial equity with healing and restoration at the center of all we do. We accomplish this by championing freedom from structural and institutional racism through partnerships with nonprofits, education institutions, foundations, businesses, and government agencies.

Our
Services

At CBV, our services take you through the learning journey to understand, embody, and embrace racial equity and justice. We believe our success is determined by how well organizations examine and rectify the root causes of issues defined by racism. To achieve the best results, we endeavor to form relationships with partners and provide the following services:

LEARN AND
PRACTICE

A learning experience like no other. Participants are given tools and resources to advance racial equity-centered design.

THRIVE
DESIGN

Design and implement a racial equity-centered strategy from within organizations to change the communities around them.

In everything we do, we intentionally focus on healing and self-care because we believe they are necessary for ultimate liberation. Instead of being a peripheral value, we’ve made healing and self-care pillars of our organization and encourage a culture of self and community love. Our healing justice-centered practices are how transformation happens.

How
Transformation
Happens

For far too long, organizations have approached racial equity from a “do then learn” standpoint. This approach often has the opposite effect of equity and furthers the tenants of white supremacy when the reality of inequity isn’t fully addressed and therefore the process to reconcile and heal is never realized. 

We believe that the eradication of these diabolical inequities must have a foundation in deep analysis and awareness before intentional accountability and action can ever occur. We help organizations lay this foundation and build on it by fostering real and open conversations through what we call Brave Space Building™.

Brave Space Building™

A space structured to allow participants to be their most authentic selves and lean in more deeply in conversations that are centered around racial equity.

Cultural Transformation

Explore the definition of justice and racial equality and learn how to approach them in your community.
