The Rural & Small Town Organizing Giving Project took place from March – September of 2019.
Social Justice Fund NW’s grantmaking region is made up primarily of small towns, reservations, and rural communities, but much of the resources go to the major urban centers of Seattle and Portland. This Giving Project focused on supporting community organizing that is building power in the rest of our region, outside of Seattle and Portland. This Giving Project supported work being done in ANY cities outside of Seattle and Portland, with priority given to organizations in rural, small town, and reservation communities.
“One thing that sticks with me is how much I enjoy and get energy from these issues. I came in tired, and now feel energized.”
