Jerry Vaughn Community Programs
All of our Jerry Vaughn Community Programs (books) are community-based and community-led and intentionally established to reach cash poor families in Black and Brown neighborhoods. Our programming is rooted in movements that build the community's power to transform the fragmentation, displacement, and loss of culture that result from histories of exploitation, genocide, and colonialism. We commune and create in ways that amplify the narratives of communities of color, cultivate solidarity in Monterey County, and center self-exploration and cultural expression.

Help us apply for nonprofit 501(c)(3) status! We have a minimum of $2500 in major donations in progress that require a tax deduction to be completed. If you want to support our efforts and help us get access to funding so we can expand, please consider donating to help cover the fees associated with the application process for becoming nonprofit. Any amount helps!
