Many1 began as a conversation among friends. The son of Ethiopian immigrants, a kid from the South Side of Chicago, a prep schooler from New England and a farm boy from Indiana. We are friends from different backgrounds, different cultures and different beliefs. Friends who don’t always agree, but always have each others’ backs and will collectively stand up for injustice. 

The Many1 movement is simple: It is about standing side by side and combatting discrimination, intolerance, and tyranny. 

It’s about going beyond the headlines, engaging in meaningful protest and demanding mutual respect. It is about living the motto of our country: E Pluribus Unum!

Of Many, We are One.
