Celebrating Bread & Roses Community Fund’s 40th Anniversary
Bread & Roses Community Fund celebrated our 40th anniversary at the Tribute to Change on November 14, 2017 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine in Philadelphia.
Did you attend the Tribute to Change? If so, we want your opinion! Please click here to fill out a brief survey.
Each year the Tribute to Change brings together people who care about social justice in the Philadelphia region to connect with each other, to celebrate recent victories, and to raise money for the next chapter of the story of grassroots change.
For the Tribute to Change: 40 Years of Resistance, we honored the 40-year legacy of Bread & Roses by presenting four longtime activists with the Legacy of Leadership Award. The Legacy of Leadership Award celebrates community organizers who have made outstanding contributions to social change while also investing in building the leadership of resistance movements by mentoring new resistance fighters.
This year’s event included two special features: storyteller Susan Klein presenting a dynamic narrative of Bread & Roses’ history based on extensive interviews and research, and Bread & Roses cofounder and renowned photographer Harvey Finkle exhibiting photos documenting four decades of local movements for change.
All proceeds from the Tribute to Change are used to support community organizers and grassroots groups in our region who are resisting, transforming, and building a more just and equitable world for all of us.
Please support the Tribute to Change and movements for real change by becoming a sponsor, purchasing a program book ad, and/or purchasing tickets.
