We believe young people passionate about social justice deserve an innovative, positive, and empowering space to grow and connect.
The Bloom launched after a realization that no resource existed at the intersection of international affairs, social justice, and...joy!
As someone passionate about human rights who was brought up between various countries and cultures, I always searched for a resource informing me of the diverse world news, supporting me in empowering directions across borders, and connecting me to young changemakers around the world. That’s why I started The Bloom.
The Bloom a global social justice that brings out the best of a diverse range of platforms, and collects it into one enjoyable and straightforward resource. We tune out the “noise” of the internet (because, you know, shit gets NOISY out here) to bring out only the most essential and meaningful information. A newsletter was the perfect first step for me because I love writing, and back in 2020 when I first started The Bloom, I was extremely shy online and an email felt pretty natural, like writing to a close friend who trusted me to share meaningful news, or who could use support in finding a job.
Going forward, that’s the spirit The Bloom will preserve – our project will expand but our roots will remain firmly grounded in the original soil we were planted in; the personal, accessible, no-bullshit friend that always wants to bring out the best in you, and supports you unconditionally along the way of your life’s journey.
with love & light,
We believe intersectional feminism is a necessary
framework not just for women but EVERYONE.
We believe it's critical to connect young changemakers to diverse resources, and empowering (and PAID) opportunities in the international social justice space.
We believe Joy is an act of resistance, a radical approach to activism grounded in celebration and hope.
We are a growing team of young humans around the world passionate about human rights, with a shared dream to make the world a better place. Together, we’re planting seeds to grow a more just future for everyday changemakers.
