Thank You for Showing Up & Meeting the Moment with New Voices!
Thanks to the Rose Community’s generosity, in just four weeks, we surpassed our $20,000 goal and raised over $23,000 for our first-ever virtual 2020 Summer Climate Justice Leadership Academy!
YOU made this possible with contributions big and small! What a huge accomplishment, especially in such unprecedented times! Thank you for showing our New Voices students you believe in them, and for supporting their leadership as they learn, organize and advocate for their communities throughout our Summer Academy.
Didn’t get a chance to donate by our deadline or inspired to give again?
We are still accepting donations and would welcome additional support!
We know some donations are still rolling in this week, and some of our Crowdfunders (people who stepped up to raise money for the program) have not yet reached their personal fundraising goals. Help our Crowdfunders reach their personal goals!
Go to our Crowdfund page, scroll down to the “Our Crowdfunders” section, and click on a Crowdfunder to find out why they are stepping up to fundraise for New Voices. Then, support their fundraising efforts with a donation!
All donations support six action-packed weeks of environmental justice education and leadership development for 18 Oakland youth; hands-on experiments, projects, and externships to explore interconnected issues in their communities; and virtual field trips, speakers, and community events to develop the skills they need to build community power and resilience, and to lead the movement for a climate just future!
And your generous support is providing all of our students with tablets, WiFi, and technology assistance to fully participate in this fully remote and virtual program, PLUS weekly boxes of fresh, local produce and home garden kits to keep our students and their families nourished through the summer and beyond!
We are so grateful to be building community power and resilience with you. Thank you for supporting New Voices students and their leadership toward a healthy and just future!
