Building Black Power

King County Equity Now (KCEN) is a pro-Black advocacy and policy organizing nonprofit focused on developing liberated Black communities that own and control the resources and systems that impact Black lives. We are Black-led, Black-centered, and birthed out of a deep legacy of Black organizing in Martin Luther King Jr. County, Washington State.

We Have A Plan

We leverage the brilliance of our local Black ecosystem to identify, elevate, and co-create Black equity solutions to combat anti-Black racism and bring about sustained, thriving Black communities.

What We Do

KCEN identifies and uplifts powerful equity solutions that, if followed, would bring the Black community to equity across all measurable metrics including e.g., land, wealth, education, health, safety, organizational control and more. Scroll to the right to read our equity solutions.
