About us

Maya Cares is a resource platform and chatbot created along with Bla(c)k Women & Women of Colour to equip and empower us against racism.

Self-doubt, fear of backlash, and lack of mental health support hamper reporting experiences of racism.

We want to change that.

Our founder Priyanka, confronting racism herself, found limited avenues to share her story that meaningfully validated her experience. And so we consulted with Bla(c)k Women and Women of Colour, and we identified an urgent need to provide a safe and private way to report racism.

Though standing up for yourself and advocating is essential, prioritising self-care and well-being is also equally critical.

Maya Cares supports the community by talking through their experience, sharing their story and finding resources from mental health to community support and legal aid.

Welcome.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and waters of Australia and pay respect to all Ancestors, Elders and families – past and present
