The 2016 campaign season was one of the most rancorous in recent memory. With the election now behind us, deep currents of frustration and anger continue to surface throughout the country, but issues of racial and economic justice have become central to the political conversation.
“The more you look at the entrenched inequalities in our city, the more you realize you need to join with folks who are already working to make social justice happen,” says new Bread & Roses donor Katie Monroe.
Youth United for Change (YUC) believes that young people who know how to advocate for themselves have the power to change their own situations and influence history.
We are excited to welcome Amanda Morales Pratt, who joined Bread & Roses as director of development this fall. Amanda will be expanding Bread & Roses’ fundraising programs and supporting donor organizing that moves more money to advance racial and economic justice.
