Breakthrough generates new ways of being.

Our work drives the culture change we need to build a world in which everyone lives with dignity, equality, and respect.


Especially those who challenge dominant structures of power simply by being. Our multi-focal lens honors the complex ways in which intersecting marginalized identities—race, ethnicity, gender + sexual expression, income level, geography, immigration status, ability—differently shape our lived experiences.

Your donation to Breakthrough means you want to build that world with us.

It means you want to directly amplify the efforts of creatives—cultural workers, media makers, artists, and techies—to dismantle oppression and shift social norms through multiple disciplines.


It means you believe in the transformative power of students, organizers, workers, and community leaders in the fight for social change.


It means that human rights start with you.
