Our Mission

The Radical Monarchs create opportunities for young girls of color to form fierce sisterhood, celebrate their identities and contribute radically to their communities.

Our Vision

The Radical Monarchs empower young girls of color so that they stay rooted in their collective power, brilliance and leadership in order to make the world a more radical place.
We've made it this far on passion, drive and creativity. Support our movement and invest in our growth!

Many people want to know how they can support the work of The Radical Monarchs, plus how they can bring a Radical Monarch Troop to their community. Here are the concrete costs for both continuing our work, and growing the Radical Monarch movement.

Our multi-year grant from the NoVo foundation runs out in the Spring of 2020. We deeply appreciate all forms of support to help us reach our funding goals! We’ve made it this far on passion, drive and creativity. Support our movement and invest in our growth!
