OUR STORY

#WeArewelcomeHere began in Harlem with the goal to empower those who are historically threatened with physical or symbolic displacement. We make space for change by providing opportunities for unlikely practitioners to practice design thinking for public interest & to solve real-world problems in our community. We provide visible solutions through visual campaigns and believe development does NOT equal displacement. Those closest to the problem not only SEE the solution but can and want to BE the solution!
