A L Efficacy Movement

It's in the subtleties... Be in the moment

Houston, TX   |  www.alefficacymovement.org

Mission

Our mission is dedicated to positively impacting the minds of youth by countering the strategic influence of historically perpetuated negative stories and imagery targeting diverse youth in the media (film, TV, radio, magazines and social media). With deliberate intent, we aim to amplify positive and productive voices from the African Diaspora through live theatre and dance. Additionally, we seek to globally celebrate Black and Latinx excellence through digital film/TV and video distribution. Our mission is not simply to entertain; it's to empower.

Notes from the nonprofit

We are in position to have our performance presentations viewed globally. Streaming video distribution on demand is set through (EMVADTV.COM). In order to produce and bring forth our full creative vision to the masses individual small donations along with larger corporate financial support are sorely needed. Youth internships are available.

Y(2024/2025) The purpose of the program is to introduce the basic fundamental game of golf to the inner city / underserved community of Houston within the confines of the city limits. Goals: One of our goals is to develop character through the structure and the rules of the game. An example of how golf builds character is that it is the only sport where participants call penalties on themselves. Golf also teaches other life skills such as patience, good sportsmanship, and the ability to focus on the task at hand. National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS)N02N02.10

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
