Happy Holidays and a Joyful New Year!

As the year draws to a close, we wish you a happy holiday season and a joyful New Year! In the spirit of the season, we wanted to share some great news with you from Detroit:

After 18 months of working closely with Project Team member Linda Campbell on issues of food justice in Detroit, a group of 12 faith-based and nonprofit emergency food providers in Detroit’s North End have been awarded a $400,000 grant by the Kresge Foundation to go towards the construction of the Storehouse of Hope Client Choice Pantry.

The group formed when the members realized they were all seeing gaps in services between their agencies. They came together to use their collective voice to address the root causes of food injustice in Detroit’s North End. The new site will not only provide community members with greater food security but will serve as a base for connecting social services with social change initiatives. Vanguard Community Development Corporation, a long-time Building Movement partner in the North End, will serve as the lead agency on this work.

When you support the Building Movement Project, you support our staff and team to work with groups like the food providers in Detroit, to highlight and promote on a national level strategies for placing social justice at the forefront of all we do.

Please consider an end-of-the-year gift to the Project to help us continue this work.
