2019 Racial & Economic Justice Giving Project

The 2019 Racial & Economic Justice Giving Project members raised money from their friends and family to make $145,000 in grants to 10 groups through the Racial & Economic Justice Fund and 9 groups through the Future Fund.

Like all Giving Projects at Bread & Roses, the 2019 Racial & Economic Justice Giving Project brought together a cross-class, cross-race, intergenerational group of people who shared a vision for social justice and wanted to apply their time, talent, and resources to supporting movements for social change.

Fundraising for the 2019 Racial & Economic Justice Giving Project is now closed, but you can still make a donation to support future Giving Projects here.
