2016 was a tumultuous year, with lots of changes for our organization, our communities, our nation, and the world. The US Presidential Election held a mirror up to the conflict, discrimination, and biases still alive and well in this country. What we saw was painful. What we saw challenged us. What we saw reaffirmed the importance of our work.
And what we saw motivated the incredible generosity of our community! We are humbled and invigorated by the outpouring of financial support we received in December. Raising over $30,000, this year-end campaign ensures that we can kick off the new year on a strong foundation.
We enter 2017 with gratitude and hope – gratitude for people supporting positive transformation and hope for positive social change towards a more just, inclusive society.
