About us

Imagine a world where every
community is flourishing and
every resident is thriving,
this is our vision.

We have a great vision of a future without racial barriers and bias. A future where leaders and organizations are equipped to root out issues caused by racism and the deep hurt that has existed for generations because of it.

CommunityBuild Ventures exists to make this vision a reality.

“There is a common misconception that equity and equality mean the same thing – and that they can be used interchangeably, especially when talking about education. But the truth is they do not – and cannot.”

- Blair Mann

Education, self-care, and healing are at the core of CommunityBuild Ventures because we understand their vital importance in the journey we’re undertaking to reach racial equity. We are dedicated to the creation of systems and educating of leaders and organizations in our communities.

Our Joy Comes From
the Journey.

While our mission is deeply serious and sobering, we find great joy in the journey that we get to play a role in. Partnering with organizations, individuals, government officials, educators, and community leaders is an honor and privilege that our team will never take for granted.

Pause to Progress

CommunityBuild Ventures is moving toward reconciliation before action. Healing must be fully realized before progress can be made. That’s why we encourage our team and partners to pause and focus on improving people-to-people relationships within an organization before we start the “work” so many other movements focus on.
