Ten Years Strong

Workers Center for Racial Justice is proud to announce an important milestone - 2022 marks our organization’s 10 year anniversary! 

 

All throughout the year, we will be celebrating our decade-long fight for Black Liberation, and the many significant wins that our grassroots members have led us to along the way. We hope that you will follow our 10th Anniversary campaign as we honor our tenacious community, highlight key moments in our history, and rally our supporters around us, ready to enter our next decade of struggle with power and resilience.

10th anniversary fundraising goals

We have set an ambitious goal for our 10th anniversary fundraising campaign: our goal is to raise $100,000 from individual supporters by the end of 2022.

 

As part of this goal, we will be working to raise $10,000 from new monthly sustainers, whose support will continue beyond 2022. By becoming a Sustainer with a monthly gift of $10 or more, you can provide the long-term support needed to achieve our vision of Black Liberation by including racial justice in your budget.
