Who We Are

The Echo Project is a nonprofit dedicated to healing racial division and standing against hatred through dialogue, empathy, and understanding.

We work on expansive, community-informed projects that recognize our past to create space for a more just future, and we’re starting with our namesake: the Echo Theater.
