Welcome to my fundraising page! I am inviting you to give to CPA - an organization that I love so much. My fundraising goal is $500! This means if 20 people donate $25, I will reach it! Any gift helps, whether it is $1, $5, or $50.
You may have known that I have been with this organization for over two years. For those who are wondering why CPA has been a political home for me:
1. CPA supports innovative and energetic ways to center the leadership of young people in our movement. We recently won our mental health campaign and was able to bring $1.25 million dollars into SFUSD wellness programs and bolster youth power and decision making! This couldn't have been possible without our youth members' leadership in the research, media engagement, and meetings with administrators and board of education members.
2. CPA is a place where I can center healing in my work. I get access to coaching opportunities, have agency to take breaks and mental health days, practice generative somatics with our team, and engage in healing centered practices with our youth members.
3. CPA allows you all as donors to participate in our movements. The most important thing about a grassroots fundraiser is being able to establish a self determination fund for our organizations. As we exist within the nonprofit industrial complex, where scarcity is centered, and where we can feel like we're always chasing after grant deliverables, our organization recognizes that people power is central to create the alternative we need. Your donation is critical for us to be able to build movements with spaciousness and agency.
I am sharing this with you all because of what this moment asks of us to meet. We are living in a time where our earth is burning and where our people are being deported and displaced. Please joining me in giving attention to nurturing the future we have been dreaming of.
