Leeway Foundation’s Statement on Power and Values

Leeway Foundation stands with our community alongside those most often marginalized and demonized by power — gender non-conforming, trans and LGBQI folks; immigrants and refugees; women and girls;  the disabled, and people of color — by supporting work that intends a social impact by challenging or questioning societal norms including prevailing attitudes about race, religion, class, gender, sexuality, identity, age, and ability.


“…. Leeway dreams a world
Where the communities
That have been blanketed in silence
Are finally heard
To be screaming.
Where no one owns our bodies
And the community owns
The pieces of it that go out into the world
Where art knows the heavy
And joyful
Responsibility it carries.
We dream a world where
The one is part of the many
Like rivulets of water
That forms a raging ocean….”

 - excerpted from Leeway's Vision Poem by Walidah Imarisha
