FFJ is proud to announce our 2nd cohort of FFJ Advisors – 12 powerhouse leaders from cities across the US. These leaders organize in multiple racial and gender justice movements to end criminalization of communities of color, including: organizing in Native nations, Latinx migrant justice, transgender rights, youth and multi-generational organizing, South Asian migrant and worker justice, power-building in the South, bail reform, Black organizing and power-building, community-determined safety and a world without prisons, an end to the public health crisis of incarceration, and an end to sexual assault and gender-based violence.
For the past three years we have not requested budgets from our grantee cohort. Rather, we have analyzed their financial data from 990s that we download directly from Guidestar and have used this analysis to engage in conversation with our partners about their financial position.
