A Word From Our Founder & CEO:
Brandi Grayson
In 2020, Urban Triage, as a result of you and your continuous and consistent support was able to meet timelines that many deemed impossible. In 12 months---we hired 8 staff, launched 5 successful campaigns, expanded our consulting work by 50X, ran 4 Supporting Healthy Black Families Workgroups, raised over $600,000, launched our Co-Conspirator Workgroup, moved from working from my kitchen table into our own community/office space and launched our Homeless Outreach Program. And all of it was and is made possible because you believed in my leadership. You never said no. You always showed up. Urban Triage is indeed a community funded and community-supported organization. We have over 50 volunteers who never hesitate to put in the work. We have over 1000 donors and counting, that never question our asks. And over 80 Black people who were forever changed by our transformational workgroup. We served over 7000 individuals, directly and indirectly, we served over 4200 meals, prevented 1000 evictions, and distributed more than $388,000 in resources to our community.

I'm forever grateful and humbled by the support and commitment of our community to Black lives. 2020 brought 4 pandemics simultaneously, political chaos, social injustice, economic insecurities, and COVID-19---and y'all showed up to meet the challenges.

As an organization, we will continue to meet "impossible" timelines and strive to meet the needs of those we serve. 2020 is and was proof that the impossible is always possible and it was only the beginning of what we'll accomplish together. Urban Triage has big plans to bring economic empowerment and wealth development to the Black Community in 2021. For us to reach our audacious goals we need a 12-month commitment from you to do the work alongside us. Our sustainability is our first priority and expanding our capacity to expand our impact starts with you. Learn more about how you can conspire with us to cause & create life-changing programming centering Black people.

Thank you for your continuous support. We are because of you!!!

COMMUNITY JUSTICE CENTER INITIAL COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS
The 2020 Dane County budget includes funding for a needs assessment, engagement, and planning for a community justice center. 

Community justice centers include social services available for community members, regardless of their involvement with the criminal justice system. 

Prior to the needs assessment, Dane County is interested in hearing from a diverse group of residents and begin conversations around this innovative and restorative concept in the criminal justice system. Is restorative a thing? Is it impossible? Follow Urban Triage's Facebook for more details. We'll be hosting 3 conversations via Zoom this month. Say, Tune!
