Pg ChangeMakers began as a Prince George’s County local activist group in 2020, focusing on police brutality, social awareness and community action. The organization was founded and led by two black women Krystal Oriadha and Amity Pope. We exist to create a safe space to elevate the voices, ideas and needs of the people of color.
Our organization is made up of individuals and organizations from different backgrounds. Our demographics are diverse in age, ethnicity, nationality, gender orientation, religion and faith, socioeconomic statuses, and educational attainment.
We soon became recognized as an empowered collection of community leaders—engaging with more and more people, adding more and more supporters, and amplifying more and more voices.
Pg ChangeMakers leads campaigns that promote real solutions to some of the biggest challenges faced by society around racial injustice. We challenge the notion that the way things are is the way things should always be, and are proud to be a force for positive transformation.
