We are THRILLED to share our 2022 Annual Report with you! 📖
2022 was a year of building for SJF: we launched our new organizational values, honed in on strategy, and explored connecting with our community in-person in a world changed by COVID-19. This year’s report was designed and illustrated by the immensely talented Raffi Marhaba of the Dream Creative!
We moved nearly $4.5 million to some incredible grassroots organizations, including 43 new grantees! Following the recommendations of our members, we focused in on funding Native-led organizing, rural communities, and queer justice movements, as well as closing out the final round of grantmaking for the Fund 4 the Frontlines Base Building Grant and the Displaced Tenants Fund.
There were new beginnings and tearful ends. We welcomed new staffers and board members, and said goodbye to several beloved community members who passed on: Shawn Walton of the Displaced Tenants for Accountability & Transparency, Michaelynn Hawk of Indian People’s Action, and in February of this year, Mads Deshazo, a brilliant artist, organizer, and SJF consultant whose work with us in 2022 had a tremendous impact on the people and policies within SJF.
We dove deep with grantees North Idaho Pride Alliance and NATIVEWOMENSHARE, learning about their origin stories, organizing, and dreams for the future. We also interviewed donor organizer Kim Yu of Radical Donors of Color for our Collective Liberation (RDCCL), a longtime SJF member and community builder.
We’re honored to share this big slice of life at SJF with our community and send you all our gratitude for your amazing support!. We hope you enjoy this peek inside 2022 at SJF!
A text-only version of the report will be available 11/17/23.
