CLLCTIVLY is creating an asset map of Black-led organizations in Baltimore

A platform that launched as 2019 opened is building an online directory of black-led organizations working in Baltimore.

With CLLCTIVLY, Founder Jamye Wooten is seeking to provide a place to find and connect with organizations working for change in the community.

At launch, the organization is gathering info for an asset map that will organize groups by neighborhood and area of concentration, Wooten said. Organizations can add their name to the platform. Future plans include a multimedia project to amplify the voices of leaders, and a skills bank. In all, CLLCTIVLY plans future initiatives in six phases.

The organization is also starting a microgrant program to provide funding. Applications opened this month, as the the Black Futures Microgrant looks to provide $1,000.

Wooten has experience working with grassroots organizations and faith-based groups on digital strategy, and bringing together Baltimore-based groups working for social justice. In the days following the death of Freddie Gray, Wooten was a cofounder Baltimore United for Change. With the belief that Baltimoreans were in the best position to take on the city’s challenges, BUC formed a coalition with more than 260 people answering its call as the group looked to provide safe harbors for students out of school and bail support.

CLLCTIVLY starts from the approach that community-based organizations are key building blocks to start development. Providing visibility to underresourced organizations, Wooten said the organization is looking to end fragmentation and duplication of programs, and be a resource that Baltimore seeks.

“This way, I think we’ll begin to show a lot of programs, nonprofits and projects doing the work in Baltimore,” he said.
