WHO WE ARE
Bamboo Inc. is an emerging 501c3 organization that leverages media, art, technology and education to create and catalyze an inclusive and just society for people of color. We seek to provide initiatives and programs that further advance culture and diversity amongst and across multicultural populations. We are committed to dismantling oppressive systems that negatively affect communities of color, and addressing social and structural inequities by increasing support for populations that often go unnoticed.
After leaving New York City and attending graduate school while in South Florida, Bamboo Inc.'s founder envisioned that after completing graduate school, she would start an organization, that would creatively and intelligently respond to the issues of marginalized communities.
It was important for the founder to name the organization a name that accurately describes the community in which B.A.M.B.O.O. serves. Today, the name B.A.M.B.O.O. represents the strength and resilience that is known of the Bamboo plant. The Bamboo plant is robust, enduring, self-healing, and regenerates stronger after its healing. The name B.A.M.B.O.O. also serves an acronym representing the work and innovative initiatives that responds to the various racial, gender and social issues that affect marginalized populations. And, to honor the education, inspiration, and significant experience received in South Florida, the founder, a New Yorker, honors South Florida in its organization's name.
