Friends and supporters,
In two weeks we’ll be hosting the Thriving Changemaker Summit in Oakland, CA. It’s a 4-day course that changed my life when I took it, and now we’re offering it to 60 social change leaders as a way to build social movements and win the victories we need.
But here’s the thing: we’ve got some amazing leaders who are doing important work and want to attend, and they can’t afford the travel and registration costs. They know that this course will help them take their social change work to a whole other level — something that will benefit all of us. Can you make a donation today to help make this possible for them?
We’ve already raised $3,854 and granted it to ten leaders who are now able to attend. But we’ve got three more who have applied and more on the way, and unless we raise more money they won’t be able to come.
One of them is named Marissa — I know her personally, and here’s what I can say: She’s a top-notch organizer and a has already made big waves in the Midwestern city where she works, but she doesn’t see her direction and how she can make a bigger impact — the one she really wants to make.
This course would be a game-changer for her, and it would be a game changer for the communities she serves and the climate movement she’s a part of.
Can you make a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to help empower Marissa to make the change she’s here to make?
Supporting changemakers to come to a course like the Thriving Changemaker Summit pays dividends. It’s an investment in people that supports them to magnify their impact, to thrive, to stick around for the long-haul instead of burning out, and to empower others with the same tools and skills.
And with climate change already at our doorstep and economic injustice straining the fabric of our communities, it couldn’t be a more important investment at a more important time.
These leaders, and all of us who are organizing the summit, would be so grateful for the support.
p.s. Donations are tax-deductible thanks to the New Organizing Institute, our fiscal sponsor, and 100% of your money will go to the changemakers who need it after their small processing fee. You can make your donation here: http://
