Announcement of Fall 2014 Grantees
2014 is coming to a close and we’re all exhaling in inspired confusion at the fascinating planet we live on. Have you all had a very full year, too? It’s been a year of reaching new apexes of struggle for all those working tirelessly for justice, conversation, and human rights. In the face of the grandness of our challenges, how can we stay hopeful and continue on in inspired action? For us, hope lies in the innumerable groups, artists, thinkers and individuals who are actively making the change our world needs.
Our fall grantees this year have been a part of the Kindle family for quite some time and our commitment to them is because of the hope and impact they create through their work.
We’ve shared many of their stories with you over the past year, and it’s been an incredible learning experience to see just how deeply these organizations dig to reveal the roots of the systemic problems we’re facing. We would like to take a moment to shine some light on the work of our grantees.
