About Dream Warriors Foundation

VISION:

Dream Warriors Foundation believes that accessible support to collaborative women, femme-identifying, and non-binary individuals inspires a stronger, more innovative local community.  

MISSION:

Dream Warriors Foundation connects, uplifts, and strengthens our community through grant-making, events, and online channels.

A Dream Warrior - commonly referred to as a “dreamie”- is a woman, femme-identifying, or non-binary individual who promotes intersectional feminism, possesses an intangible brightness and has an instinct to connect with and better the world around us. A Dream Warrior believes that by unifying, relying, and sharing our experiences with one another, we are more equipped to forge forward on our own individual paths and foster positive change.

The Dream Warriors Foundation is a funding mechanism to support Dream Warriors. Through grants, events, and online channels, the foundation provides IRL opportunities for a unified community. 

An annual membership gains individuals access to discounts on our online directory of Dream Warrior-owned businesses, discounts to unique events, and personally supports our grant-making efforts in Metro Atlanta.


The Herstory of Dream Warriors

Dream Warriors was started by Allie Bashuk in 2011 as a Facebook group. Since its inception, Dream Warriors has grown and evolved in wonderful, unexpected ways. It turns out, most powerful women, femme-identifying and non-binary individuals know other equally powerful individuals, and with each new addition, the group progresses, gains complexity, and ripens with potential. It’s not always easy but the potential to learn and grow is infinite. The online group serves as a resource network and trusted community and has evolved into an underground network of revolutionary women, femme-identifying and non-binary individuals in the Atlanta area. While the Dream Warriors social community will remain a private space, the Foundation seeks to rally everyone around our efforts to provide support to Dream Warriors in Atlanta. 

In 2017, Co-Founders Allie and Haley set out on a mission to bring the values started by the online community into real life support for Dream Warriors in Atlanta. Bringing together their creative and business expertise, the two, along with the support of their team, seek to connect, uplift and strengthen dreamies in Atlanta.
