CJI FreeHER Campaign Mixer
Time & Location
About The Event
CJI works to end mass incarceration and criminalization throughout the country. We do this by forming giving circles that raise and grant funds to grassroots organizing groups & organizations. Our giving is explicitly inspired and designed to reflect a principle of participatory philanthropy that values the role of THOSE MOST AFFECTED BY INJUSTICE as LEADERS in GENERATING the SOLUTIONS to the ISSUES They FACE.
Through the FreeHer Fund, we are working to support MORE formerly incarcerated women & girls who lead front-line organizations in the Movement get connected to the resources they need to succeed. We have ways to go, but working together we can grow a Just Sisterhood!
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $500,000, which will be awarded to up to 25 women/girl lead organizations this year. Their work focuses on restoration of rights; sentencing and conditions of confinement and economic & reproductive justice.
Please join us on Thursday, March 19th to celebrate the launch of the FreeHER Circle Fund and to network with like-minded FreeHER supporters at:
Hampton Inn Brooklyn Downtiwn SkyTerrace
125 Flatbush Ave Extension Brooklyn, NY
featuring Starr Busby
We ask that you also take the FreeHER Challange by making a contribution and challenge your colleagues, friends, and family to do the same by March 30th through your social media networks (learn more at www.cjifund.org/freeher) . We believe that your commitment to this campaign will help to raise awareness of the importance of this giving and how it impacts our communities. Your support will help make the first FreeHER Campaign a great success!
