Show Notes

DAWA, standing for Diversity, Awareness and Wellness in Action, is an Austin-based organization that honors, celebrates, and empowers the essential work of community frontliners and creatives of color through direct financial support, and culturally relevant health-centered programming. In the process they are modeling a form of social entrepreneurship that shows how small organizations can make a big difference, in ways even a major philanthropy like the Hogg Foundation can learn from. Their founder and director, Chaka Mahone, is in our studio today to tell us all about it.
