Contribute and reallocate your wealth to HTE's Lantern Fund:

What does the LANTERN FUND provide?




FUNDING AFFORDABLE TICKETING - Lantern Tix is a strategic ticketing initiative that lights pathways for community groups to attend theater. Our work prioritizes sustainability, equity, and care by removing barriers to create spaces of joy and belonging. Lantern Tix creates relationships with productions to provide access to free or discounted tickets to HTE approved individuals and communities - See more below.





Lantern Coaching supports POC in their self determination journeys by providing them with underwritten coaching in legal, mental health, financial sustainability, workplace trauma and resource development needs. The program functions like a concierge service supporting participants through an application process that leads to customized coaching sessions offered by leaders of all racial background across industries.  




The Lantern Library is a pop up museum and multi-faceted education experience for guests who are interested in dismantling systemic oppression. Harriet Tubman Effect has designed the Lantern Library to help leaders engage with stories of the past to help our problem solving and equity work of the future and to provide BIPOC leaders a space to network, share their work, showcase themselves and recruit employment opportunities. The Lantern Library serves as an orchestrated network for the practice of reallocating wealth across identities and professions.




Lantern Guide is a digital assessment tool that helps organizations interested in dismantling systemic oppression share and track individual and organizational progress in workplace wellness. The tool is inspired by the Negro Motorist’s Greenbook and utilizes personal stories to illuminate pathways toward sustainable social change in the workplace.




Lantern Orgs allows HTE to support organizations who would not otherwise be able to raise funds and gain mainstream attraction on their own. HTE chooses each partner org carefully based on alignment of their mission and our own values. In partnership with these organizations, HTE produces educational content, videos, pitch packets and social media content to activate brand awareness that strengthens the infrastructure of our collective dismantling systemic oppression goals.

Are you a person of privilege?


American institutions were, and continue to be, vehicles designed to ensure exclusive white prosperity. In addition to confronting systemic oppression through research and production, The Harriet Tubman Effect Institute seeks to create a culture in which citizens with privilege are keenly aware of their roles and responsibilities in the ongoing journey towards reparations and re-allocation of wealth. What does this mean for you? 

Reallocate your wealth.


If people of privilege are willing and ready to admit the truths of the institutions they benefit from and openly begin to offer/relinquish their wealth, decision making, policy design, chain of command thereby embracing decentralization of power, we can begin to offer American wealth directly to systemically-oppressed communities.
