About the Organizers

(for demonstration only; all other key partners will be added here before the site goes live!)

Glowing blue lines divide the image into three major triangles. Three people of different races and genders stand in the center, gazing at us confidently: one holds a microphone, one holds a walkie-talkie, and one holds a clipboard and wears a safety helmet and vest. Behind them, a stage rises towards a starry night sky: we see the first central figure standing onstage, raising their violin in one hand while the audience cheers. In the left scene, a wildfire burns in the distance while the person with the safety vest and clipboard stands in front of an ambulance, helping to distribute boxes of supplies to people and families.
