Laini Kuumba is an organization that does good and ethical work in the New Orleans community, particularly those that have been disenfranchised in certain ways. They support the community by providing space for healing and comfort. As an organization, they do not just work as a typical non-profit because many regard Laini Kuumba as family. They truly exemplify unity and upliftment to oppressed people.
