Who We Are

At our core, 51st Collective is a hub for connecting organizations and community members to facilitate a collective response to social justice issues.

Our Name

51st Collective is a public interest charity that Our name, the '51st Collective' refers to theories of collective behavior wherein a minimum number of individuals must be engaged in a for those individuals to begin acting as a group. 50 people may act as individuals, but 51 people becomes a 'collective'. 


At the 51st, we believe collective action achieves a result greater than the simple sum of each individual who joins our cause. Each partner, volunteer, and community member brings a unique perspective to social problem-solving. By applying our efforts as a group, we are far more impactful together than we ever could be alone. Together, we work to leverage our collective power by organizing resources for community-engaged learning opportunities and public programs in service to our community. 

 Our work as a charity is grounded in the principles of Public Sociology, wherein social theories of human behavior and social organization are liberated from the ivory tower, applied in partnership with community, and pursued in the service of others.
