This month, we're thinking about the just, equitable, and sustainable world that we name in our mission and are driving towards in all of our work. Sometimes, the journey is long, as seen in the powerful miniseries When They See Us, about the wrongful conviction of the Central Park Five, which has been watched by over 23 million Netflix accounts and recently received 16 Emmy nominations.
That's why, this month, we have been drawn to:
- Those who are on the journey with us, like Borealis Philanthropy, which recently announced a Spark Justice Fund to transform pretrial justice and end money bail
- Those who are showing us how far we have to go, as Mijente did with their documentation of how ICE planned its largest-ever immigration raid in history
- And those who are making sure that everyone is included along the way, as we've seen recently in this article by Jen Bokoff in Chronicle of Philanthropy about the importance of lifting up philanthropy's unheard voices and the recent study by Cause Effective about the lived experiences and barriers faced by fundraisers of color (echoing another recent piece in Chronicle of Philanthropy in which nonprofit leaders of color speak out about their experiences in the sector)
