Who are Community Sustainers?
Our social network includes hundreds of individuals committed to the empowerment and self-determination efforts of Black youth, families and communities in Baltimore.

Community Sustainers are individuals and organizations that support the mission of Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle via recurring monthly financial investments in our work.

Unrestricted financial capital to fund the operations of our grassroots organizing work is made possible by our Sustainers who contribute each month to LBS.
