FIER was founded in 2020 amidst the countless protests against police brutality and rampant xenophobia stemming from the COVID 19 pandemic. Our name, the Foundation for Inter-Ethnic Restoration, came from our desire to unite different ethnic/racial groups and address racial tension in society.
Our mission is to raise awareness about racial trauma and racial literacy through the creative arts in order to foster better allyship between diverse communities.
FIER envisions a world where race isn't a wedge that divides us but a bridge that unites us.
Our Racial Literacy Database, community discussions, art-based workshops and events are an open opportunity to learn about racial literacy and actively engage to improve it!
We connect our local community with mental health resources through referrals to Racial Trauma Centers across the US and through our Racial Literacy Database
FIER is a melange of experts, students, mental health professionals and volunteers all dedicated to providing an innovative approach to raising awareness about racial literacy. Our team is comprised of a diverse cultural background as well, with volunteers from Nigeria, China, Russia, Cuba, Bangladesh and all over the US.
In addition to traditional social media outlets, FIER's discussions and vlogs are also available on Spotify, iHeart Radio, Amazon Music, Patreon and more!
