About The Organization

Ashé Cultural Arts Center (Sisters In the Name of Love)

Ashé Cultural Arts Center uses art and culture to support equity, human, community and economic development. Ashé is an initiative of Efforts of Grace, Inc., a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), organization that creates and supports programs, activities, and creative works emphasizing the contributions of people of African descent.

Located in Central City, the Center provides opportunities for art presentations, community development, artist support, and the creation of partnerships that amplify outreach and support efforts. Ashé houses a repertoire of original theater works that are available for touring, and provides sponsorship for many private, public, community-focused, and family-oriented events.

A group of like-minded women come together each year to plan the 1 Billion Rising Event. Some of the women are staff members from nonprofit organizations, others are volunteers of Ashé. They answered the call to action and said they were willing to RISE! RESIST! UNITE! They continue to be the force behind this event.
