40th Anniversary Tribute to Change: 40 Years of Resistance

40 years of resistance logoBread & Roses Community Fund will be celebrating our 40th anniversary Tribute to Change on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts located 128 N Broad St in Philadelphia. Please join us!

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 help raise funds for movements in Philadelphia, the next chapter of the story of grassroots change.

This Tribute to Change we will be celebrating 40 years of resistance. We will be focusing our Tribute to Change awards on our community of change makers and resistance fighters, and Bread and Roses Community Fund’s support of resistance movements over the past 40 years.

Will you help us look back into our history to find the change makers who took on leadership roles but who also spent their time nurturing the development of new resistance fighters and leaders?

Funds raised from the Tribute to Change will be used to support Bread & Roses’ programs supporting resistance movements and their leaders in the coming year.

To commemorate Bread & Roses Community Fund’s 40th anniversary, the Tribute to Change planning committee chose to focus this year’s awards on leaders who nurture new leaders. By acting as educators and mentors, these honorees look beyond their present moment to ensure that movements for change can thrive over generations.
