WELCOME TO WCWM: WHO’S COMING WITH ME

wcwm black

WCWM: Who’s Coming With Me, LLC is a unity movement that supports and creates Black artists, businesses, and youth entrepreneurship in New Orleans. Founded in 2011 as a Stop The Violence movement, WCWM made the conscious decision to become more solution orientated and has evolved into a Unity Movement & business in August 2015.

WCWM is about relationship building as a means of becoming more interdependent within the New Orleans Black community. It is a solution toward ending the violence, poverty and criminalization that many of our inner city youth too often fall victim to. It’s about providing businesses and artists with the support they need to continue to grow and employ young skilled workers at living wages.

WCWM promotes investing in young aspiring artists and entrepreneurs through mentorship from established and skilled artists and entrepreneurs within the Black community.

“Together we can be the change we want to see in New Orleans. All I wanna know is, Who’s Coming With Me?”
