SMART believes that the hostile political climate of today demands confrontation and action to combat the many threats posed to our core mission of equity, and so we have introduced a comprehensive initiative to forge a path of awareness, civic engagement, and activism that invites the participation of our SMART community. Welcome to SMART HEART Activism!

SMART HEART Activism explores societal barriers confronting low-income women of color, equipping participants with information and resources to address and challenge systemic inequity. Over the course of three 8-week sessions, leaders in social justice fields conduct classes in civics education, advocacy, and self-defense to promote social awareness and build a supportive community. We also recognize the importance of creativity in finding and raising our voices, and so are utilizing art-making techniques to facilitate individual and communal healing.
