About Brioxy

Our Story

The First Network Fighting for Economic Opportunity and Health for Young People of Color

Founded in California, Brioxy is linking thousands of young people of color together to change the opportunity landscape in this country. We are on the cusp of the largest demographic shift this country has seen in almost 500 years. Today, 70% of those under 25 in California are young people of color. But by 2040 it will be the nation.

We created Brioxy to organize ourselves, invest in each other’s dreams and advance health, education and economic policy that will improve all of our lives. By becoming a member of Brioxy you have a stake in our collective future.

You also get some really amazing tools to accelerate your own success. Brioxy gives you a great to do list system, access to important wellness and personal growth events, a national network and the chance to hear from some of the most dynamic people of color in the country. Learn how to land the job you want or navigate the daily micro aggressions of racism, sexism or transphobia. Living the Brioxy Life is about redefining, for ourselves, how we shape our lives and communities. All you need are the right tools.

By joining our community you’re taking a step in the direction of your destiny, giving back in a huge way, and joining other young people of color to build the future of this country.
