We’re working toward one goal: a country where everyone has a fair shot at wellbeing. That’s our North Star.
We don’t all have a fair shot at wellbeing because racism, sexism, homophobia and additional otherings are baked into our systems and our country. This creates fast tracks to wellbeing for some and dramatically reduces access for others.
The system is rigged and the solution isn’t to create more programs for people harmed by these same unfair systems. The solution is to reimagine these systems to make our country fairer and more equitable for everyone. That means ensuring that the places where we work, live, play and pray tap into people’s universal drive for wellbeing, instead of undermining wellbeing for some and enabling it for others.
That’s what we do.
The Full Frame Initiative is a social change nonprofit working toward a country where everyone has a fair shot at wellbeing—the needs and experiences essential for health and hope. We partner with a growing cohort of pioneering public systems, communities and nonprofits across the country to fundamentally transform the structures and beliefs that perpetuate poverty, violence and oppression. We are bold, mission-focused, creative and committed learners and are willing to use our passion, humor and hope to fuel change.

Differences in access to wellbeing create differences in experiences and outcomes, and this perpetuates inequalities. We are working to change this.”
