Weapons of Mass Empowerment is a coalition of unconventional, civically engaged citizens committed to using collective impact towards action to improve life in Dallas in these four areas: voter turnout, educational equity, police brutality and economic empowerment.

Creating Our Future believes that the work creatives perform constitutes a public good. We believe that creatives are an under-utilized resource for helping solve the non-traditional problems that our cities and neighborhoods currently face. We believe that one cannot support the arts without supporting the people who create the art. Creating Our Future hopes that by encouraging creatives to make their neighborhoods better, and encouraging public officials, business leaders, and institutions to support creatives, we can create a better future for the city of Dallas.
