Every adult needs a good job and every child needs a good education. During the last Racial and Economic Justice Fund grant cycle, the Community Grantmaking Committee decided to prioritize workers’ rights and education. This year’s grantees are building constituent-led movements for better jobs and education, with leaders and decision makers from affected communities. Bread & Roses grantees set their campaign priorities by listening to people’s stories, struggles, and pain and organizing around issues that come up frequently, such as poor working conditions, low wages, and broken schools.
Every grant Bread & Roses makes is thanks to a network of thousands of donors from all over the Delaware Valley.
“Bread & Roses grants empower people and organizations to deal with problems affecting them and on their terms. That gives us hope.”
This past year, Philadelphia Student Union (PSU), a Racial and Economic Justice Fund grantee, organized multiple rallies to challenge the drastic school closures, budget cuts, and faculty layoffs on the table for city schools.
