Launched in 2014, the YBCA 100 list publicly celebrates artists, activists, and leaders who are committed to building regenerative and equitable communities. These fierce innovators work steadfastly through art and activism to provoke, inspire, ground, heal, and bring us together when we need it most.

As 2023 continues to call for radical levels of hope and repair, this year’s YBCA 100 list honors those who inspire us to connect to and be changed by one another in collective pursuit of better ways forward. Though the YBCA 100 list has previously celebrated national and international changemakers, this year we chose to return to our roots, focusing on hyper-local Bay Area individuals and organizations.

The 2023 YBCA 100 Honorees will be celebrated with a dynamic program of live performances, interactive art, food activations, and meaningful connections on Saturday, March 18, 2023 from 6-9pm. Join us as we shine a light on those moving us towards empathy, hope, and action.
