What is Uniting Wisdom?
We believe that through education and experience we can unite San Antonio, Texas. Through wisdom we can understand and embrace our cultural differences and bridge the economic divides we see throughout our communities.
Uniting Wisdom is currently mentoring young people as part of its program. Our organization works to feed homeless youth and provide resources and assistance. When appropriate, we reunite, strengthen and sometimes rebuild families. We believe that we grow through new experiences, like taking city kids camping or participating in work ethic workshops. Lastly, our community-giving initiative organizes a yearly back-to-school drive and Christmas Drive.
Over the past years and months, we've worked in the San Antonio community to do our part to improve the lives of all. In the wake of George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Philando Castile, Breonna Taylor and sadly many more, we face growing unrest in our neighborhoods.
Uniting through wisdom takes action.
We believe in justice and equality for everyone.
Our goal is to support homeless youth while fighting police brutality, racial discrimination , social injustice, and economic inequality in San Antonio, Texas.
The organization started in 2016. We began by assisting homeless youth and adults with back-to-school and Christmas toy drives for the community.
In 2017 we played a pivotal role in removal of a Confederate monument in a downtown San Antonio Park.
In 2020 our organization spoke out against police brutality and marched in the streets to remind us all that Black Lives Matter. Uniting Wisdom is currently urging San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg to prioritize a civilian independent review board to monitor and discipline police who break SAPD training and policy.
As we continue to grow our passion for helping people drives us to support our community through action.
