Like many of you, The Gathering for Justice has been adjusting to life in the time of this ongoing global pandemic. And while we continue to build our current programming and develop ideas and solutions for reaching our communities now and in the future, it is also important that we find ways to provide relief and emergency aid to the populations and communities we serve. Thanks to generous grounding investments from philanthropic funders and community, we launched our first Rapid Response Fund.
We are pleased to share that our Community Relief Fund will continue to provide relief grants to individuals and organizations in need on a rolling basis as funding allows.
