Announcing the YBCA 100

 
An annual list that celebrates the everyday heroes—artists, activists, and community leaders—for their extraordinary commitment to building sustainable, equitable, and regenerative communities. These recipients are the provocateurs and innovators who are boldly making a difference in the health and well-being of their communities, working tirelessly in pursuit of racial equity, and using art and activism to heal and bring us together in spirit when we need it most. For the first time since the list’s inception in 2014, the public was invited to participate in the nomination process. The result is a dynamic selection of individuals and organizations from the Bay Area and beyond who are stepping up to lead the way—and YOU, our YBCA community, who we believe to be a critical part of how we build communities together. The YBCA 100 honorees will be celebrated on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at the YBCA 100 Summit, a virtual convening featuring performances, stories, and rituals for a joyous and interactive communal experience.

Get to know the YBCA 100 and join us as we celebrate, elevate, and shine a light on people who are working to create a more equitable and just society.
