About Us

ABC is a 501(c)3 technical assistance and research organization with a mission to improve quality of life for people of color through the arts and STEM. Our services focus on the underlying factors that impede their creative and professional endeavors: access to capital, networks, and training.

ABC aims to systemically improve the quality of life in communities of color through two main services: the Grassroots Action Project and the Rising Tides Research Institute.
