PEOPLE. POWER. PARTICIPATION. PEOPLE. POWER. PARTICIPATION. PEOPLE. POWER. PARTICIPATION. 

As organizations dedicated to the work of social change, we see joint fundraising as a practice of our core values: mutuality and collective work. This summer, we actualized those values by planning and co-hosting a virtual gala. We raised over $25,000 and it was split evenly between both organizations.

To continue in this new practice,
and
are launching People, Power and Participation: a 45 day year-end giving campaign. This campaign highlights our people’s innate understanding of what we need, ability to reimagine systems and culture, and the power to build and effect change when we gather and participate.

Your gift will support both organizations as we continue to build an economy that centers working class people of color, our histories, futures and present needs.
