To embolden means to instill boldness, courage or resolution enough to overcome apprehension or misgiving. Embolden WI works to help cultivate the courage, curiosity, community and connection that strengthen the inherent power in all individuals. We believe those who have been systematically marginalized to the edges of democracy should be in the driver’s seat of change. We are the home for innovative projects and initiatives that advance health outcomes and civic health in Wisconsin and beyond.
