We use direct actions to interrupt the status quo and bring awareness to key issues and different forms of state violence affecting the root causes of the plight of black and brown people around the world.,


We stand against the many forms of state violence: police killings, mass incarceration, poverty and others.  We stand for justice for Tony Robinson and ALL Black lives lost at the hands of the state. We stand for community and self determination. We will not stop until we are free.

Support the victims of Hurricane Harvey by clicking here! YGB is leading a fundraising campaign to help out grassroots organizations who are on the ground doing real work for those affected by the hurricane - not the Red Cross, which mismanages funds and fails to do the dirty work necessary for those who are need it most. Please help those affected by donating here.

Support the FreeThe350 Bail Fund here. We know that the Dane County Jail’s bail system is designed to penalize poor people - most often people of color. The FreeThe350 Bail Fund is an online fundraiser to pay the bails of incarcerated people of color. Please support the fund by clicking here.

We will be focusing our efforts in three key areas: Understanding Black Needs, Building Collective Analysis, and Advocacy. Working in these areas, we believe we will more efficiently build community power to create and sustain change.

Black Advocacy


The Young Gifted and Black coalition seeks to end state violence that manifests in many ways in our communities. It manifests in poverty, mass incarceration, racial disparity and the murder of black people at the hands of the police every 28 hours.

We are fighting the various forms of state violence and racism by building and mobilizing our communities toward power and real change. Funds raised will be used to support our efforts in the struggle to end state violence.

Your support will help to sustain our work in the above key areas so that we can begin to do for ourselves what we're calling on the state to do. We also need funds for bail rescue as police continue to arrest us at a rate of 11 (blacks) to1 (white).

Be a part of the movement to end state violence. We will continually update this campaign with YGB's next strategy in the movement as well as our victories.

YGB needs your voice in order to get an investigation by the United Nations as we elevate the conversation of of racial disparities in Madison and fight for justice for Tony Robinson, the unarmed black teen murdered at the hands of officer Matt Kenny of the Madison Police Department  



YGB demands that Matt Kenny, the murderer of Tony Robinson, be fired. Far to often are killer cops left unpunished, and we want Kenny off the streets.



The Young Gifted and Black Coalition is a circle of young leaders determined to end state violence and raise the voice of communities of color. We are young Black Women, Queer Folks, Straight Folks and Feminist Men who are fighting for Black Liberation. Our focus is on the low income black communities that our core members call home.
