In 2018, Virginia Cumberbatch and Megan Harding founded the production company Rosa Rebellion. Their mission is critical. Rosa Rebellion underscores and supports creative projects fueled by women of color centered around incendiary activism. Their productions and efforts provide women of color financial and communal support to tell their stories “and design practices of disruption that inspire resistance, resilience, and radical change.”

Rosa Rebellion fuels a conversation that inspires everyone to fight for equity and justice. As America continues to be mired in racial oppression and injustice, Cumberbatch, Harding, and the entire Rosa Rebellion team encourage true racial reckoning to happen via collective efforts from all of humanity.

One of Rosa Rebellion’s latest launches is The Rebel Fund, a non-profit endeavor to provide financial capital to women of color engaged in creative activism projects. The Rebel Fund is breaking the norm, offering creative activists who have been overlooked when raising money. As Harding pointed out, “We know women of color have received very little funding.”

The Rebel Fund, along with Rosa Rebellion’s entire collective, is fighting for equity and beyond: This inspiring team of women is stepping up and out “to unapologetically invest in the visions, the creative activism, and the disruptive work that we know women of color are foraging every single day,” says Cumberbatch.
