Dear allies and friends,
Thanks to you we've been able to bring the power of the Arts to hundreds of young people in juvenile halls and camps + mobilize over 100 artists across the country + elevate the voices of our most marginalized communities throughout Los Angeles at high-profile events, from the Mayor's Office of Re-entry to WeRise. On behalf of our communities, thank you.
There is something disruptive to systemic oppression when we bring people together to tackle challenging issues through the Arts. With your help, we've been able to facilitate many workshops this year - from training teaching artists to develop their own practice for systems-impacted people, to training leading foundations and legislators to greater impact through an arts-based approach.
Every day, your support makes the #POWEROFTHEARTS possible – in its power to inspire change, unify values, amplify stories and activate action.
Today, we’re launching our Year-End Campaign: #TO2020.
Our goal is to elevate the power of the arts as a revolutionary act that can disrupt, change and amplify silenced narratives. That's why every day for the rest of the year, we'll be releasing content for #20+20 Days of Amplifying Silenced Voices. Tune in to our social media accounts for 20 days of inspiring poetry + 20 days of activated voices from people for whom the #powerofthearts has proved life-changing. Follow us and please share widely!
The conventional ways of funding this work are often prohibitive to smaller Community-Based Organizations, so we're reaching out to you to ensure we can continue to do this life-changing work. We've proved that our programs work and our young people and those serving long sentences are crying out to us for them.
That’s why our goal for this campaign is to raise $50,000 by December 31st. We need your help to make it happen.
Would you be willing to make a special tax-deductible year-end donation of $50, $100, $1000 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal?
We won't bombard you with emails, but we are asking you to amplify your wonderful, encouraging words with a donation that will directly impact the lives we know urgently need this work. It simply can't happen without you. Thank you.
Together to 2020,
