WE ARE.

KonsiderDis has a rich legacy of empowering and supporting underserved and economically challenged communities, particularly the Ward 8 Community, by fostering deliberate behavioral change through art and humanities. Our initiative began in response to the needs, aspirations, and societal circumstances of Black and Brown individuals, aiming for a profound influence on the positive evolution of inner-city families.

Through partnerships with various community organizations, we have positively impacted over 3,000 community members spanning all ages and backgrounds.
