Creatives, entrepreneurs, and communities of color working together to create cultural and community pride, prosperity and wealth.

Yes, MaskOutHate is about making masks together. But the more we build and strengthen our social fabric, the more possibilities will reveal themselves. And we are in it for the long haul.

COVID-19 won't be around forever (we hope), and at the heart of this project is a vision for the future. A future where Black communities and communities of color thrive in social and economic justice. A future where the strength of our relationships is a launching pad for entrepreneurs and creatives of color to co-design the products, services, and systems our communities need.

"I participated in today's #MaskOutHate session and want to thank you all so much for hosting such a great meeting. I really have been wondering what I could do to help create a mask that speaks power to the racial tensions we are seeing as a nation. This is (I hope...) an important turning point in our history. Community members coming together to stamp out hate is how we move one step closer to a world founded on love."

“MESO (Micro Enterprise Services of Oregon) is excited to participate in the new initiative #MaskOutHate. Their vision of driving social and economic justice in Black communities and communities of color through income-generating opportunities aligns with MESO's goal to support our local underserved small businesses with economic opportunities.”

— Nita Shah, Executive Director, MESO
"I think that [the #MaskOutHate] project asks an important and timely question. How can we make public space a safer environment for all people? Can art help us to better see one another as humans? How has a pandemic fueled uprising ignitied the way we walk through public space in a city with a track record of racialized violence? Can a well designed mask empower and embolden the people in our communities that have historically been racially or ethnically profiled?
