My name is Peggy Shinner, I was a member of the 2017 Giving Project at Crossroads Fund, a cross-race, cross-class cohort of 20 people who committed to a 6-month transformational process with the goal to support grassroots groups on the frontlines of systems change. I want to build on a previous email you received from Teresa Garcia on why we support Crossroads Fund.

Crossroads Fund is committed to supporting youth-led organizing and we are excited to award $84,500 in grants to twenty-four organizations through our Youth Fund for Social Change (Youth Fund). The 2018 Youth Fund cycle marks the 10th anniversary of the fund and the most money awarded in a single cycle since its inception in 2008.
