Announcing the New Kindle Project Grantees!
These eleven partners come to us entirely via our #ShiftThePower m.o. from our 2018 participatory grantmaking programs. From our SpiderWeave to Slow Fuse Flow Funding cohorts and our mighty Carousel Awards we are excited to welcome a whole new community to the Kindle Project family.
Our philosophy is based on our purpose for being on this planet. We are in service for planetary peace, the healing of humanity, caretaker of the earth, and provider/protector of the children. This is an assignment assigned by the vision of the ancestors who have passed on this vision from generation to generation. This is the final phase of work which took eons to build.
Pueblo Action Alliance was formed by several Pueblo people to promote Environmental Justice that impacts indigenous lands and its people. The organization has thus transitioned into an indigenous women led grassroots organization to forward feminist action in the Environmental Justice Movement. As women, mothers and daughters we are privileged by a matriarchal perspective; by internalizing the violence inflicted against Mother Earth, we can take action to protect her and ourselves. Currently, our work revolves around protecting the Greater Chaco region against oil and gas extraction. We raise awareness and teach our community how to become civically active in the environmental justice movement.
Sounds of Brownsville (SOB) is a project of the Brownsville Community Justice Center. SOB is a youth-led music collective that seeks to reduce community violence by engaging those at the center of this violence, providing opportunities in the music industry, and promoting positive youth culture through music production and cultural events. Young people work with experienced teaching artists and producers, develop their artistic abilities, and create alternative community narratives. Participants also receive holistic individual support to address barriers to their success.
