stronger Madison for ALL
was created in the mid 1990′s in response to the unmet social, academic and spiritual needs of Madison’s at-risk and disenfranchised Black community. For thirty years, Nehemiah has focused on empowering children, youth and families through culturally relevant educational and social service support programs. Nehemiah staff have served and empowered thousands of participants who are now living healthier and happier lives.
We know that addressing the harmful effects of racism on health and well-being is not the work of those who suffer from them. In 2015, the Nehemiah story opened a new chapter of its efforts – through the Justified Anger Initiative. This work has engaged thousands of our non-Black allies in addressing racism by understanding and seeking to change the systems that hold it in place.
