Our Track Record

Piece by Piece projects are always building on each other and our impact is always expanding. Whether the program is designed and managed in house or if we are coming in to support ongoing efforts, we know that at the center of social change is our movement infrastructure and people. Our work is designed with an impact first approach that centers our people and organizations. A few of our capacity building, learning communities, idea generation, and equitable resource development projects are highlighted below. Please connect with us directly to learn more specific information, learn about additional projects, and/or talk about how to get involved.

Visionary Freedom Fund

The 2020 Vision for Youth Justice Initiative (Visionary Freedom Fund) seeks to ensure that frontline communities have the resources, capacities, supports, infrastructure and relationships they need to develop and implement inspiring long-term strategies to transform the youth justice system. A key component of the Visionary Freedom Fund is the Power Table, a youth-led collective who will come together to inform values-aligned funders about how to best support their long-term vision for youth justice. Together, they will help transform the way philanthropy partners with frontline communities by creating equal representation at the table where grantmaking strategies and decisions are made. PxP serves as the project/program managers for the fund.

Jessica and Bryan bring a high level of professionalism and project management acumen to their approach. But they also bring an incredible amount of empathy and emotional intelligence that is required need to work with diverse groups and leaders. It's been a joy to work with them."

Austin Belali

A coalition of voting and civil rights partners were searching for project management services to support a convening that would bring together various national and local organizations together to learn and strategize together. With a short timeline, Piece by Piece was able to provide the on the ground logistics, facilitation, and programmatic support the partners needed. I highly recommend this dream team.

Claribel Vidal, Program Associate, Civic Engagement & Government, Ford Foundation

The Piece by Piece team have shifted the way we work on capacity building with our partners as a new fund. Bryan and Jess are incredibly thoughtful and innovative in creating and co-strategizing on capacity building events for our movement leaders. Their emphasis on supporting authentic and local leadership combined with years of expertise has provided incredible momentum building spaces for our communities.

Chi-Ante Singletary, Executive Director, Cypress Fund

Working with the Piece by Piece Team was great, they truly are masters at facilitating events and their mastery allowed me to focus on the substance of the conference. They thought about little things that I would never think of, which shows their knowledge of the event planning space. Also, their passion for public interest projects and their thoughtfulness around public interest issues is phenomenal. I’m so grateful for the Piece by Piece team and will definitely hire them again for future events.

Mitchell D. Brown, Southern Coalition for Social Justice, Equal Works Justice Fellow

“I’m grateful for this space and opportunity which is forcing me to slow down, take stock, look around to others for help/inspiration, and to move forward together. I’m still thinking about a statement made in the opening: our wins are collective and so are our failures. Thank you!"
