25 black women who are changing the world

There is a new co-working space coming to the Washington, D.C., area created by the founder of Because of Them, We Can, Eunique Jones Gibson. The space, called Dream Village, is defined as a safe space for dreamers and is coming to Hyattsville, Maryland, in January 2018 according to a recent post on Blavity.

In a statement on Instagram, Gibson wrote:

“I don’t get excited much, but I am here. I’ve met thousands of people these last 5 years through my travels for @becauseofthem and I have found that while there is no shortage of people who are inspired to pursue their dreams, often times there is an absence of consistent support and resources. Not because it doesn’t exist, but because of access issues and/or because we’ve been in our individual silos—focused on building, figuring things out and simply surviving, that we haven’t done as much to recognize, leverage or cultivate the village around us. Or maybe that’s just me? Lord knows there have been times when I needed a village. Not just to help me but a village to check me and protect me. And so…behind me is a curated space for US, to collaborate and connect in an environment that will help us build our dreams AND our village. It’s a big goal, but I am ambitiously optimistic (crazy or naive) enough to believe that the universe can use me (and a dope village of advisors) to create spaces and experiences that will bring back the village values that our community needs. And the very first one is opening next month right outside of D.C. in Hyattsville, MD. Instagram fam, meet my new baby: Dream Village

Dream Village is for entrepreneurs to network with like-minded individuals, gather resources for their companies, and partake in experiences that will help them grow and thrive individually and collectively. Additionally, it is also built on creativity and innovation where the Dreamers can build and help one another launch ideas and dreams as a community.
