Nia Wilson



The brutal killing of Nia Wilson has absolutely devastated the Grantmakers for Girls of Color community. Nia was a fierce, talented, loving, and extremely loved 18-year old young woman who deserved her bright future.

We are determined to carry Nia’s light forward in our work. As a Grantmaking community, we will continue to come together to support and shine light on the brilliant young women of color organizers, healers, advocates, and community members leading the way forward.
