2020 was quite a year. Our small organization adapted, responded, and deepened our work in response to the pandemic, racial justice uprisings, and the needs of our people. Read our annual appeal which highlights all that we did! Please also read our Antiracist Statement written by the Summer Youth Crew in the summer of 2020.
