BRIDGES 13th Annual WALK for a Just Community
Please donate at least $10 because I WILL Walk for a JUST so that everyone in our community will feel welcomed and respected!
I want to make a differnece in this community, and I'd like you to join me. BRIDGES is having a major impact on reducing conflict among youth in our schools, helping communities to become more welcoming to its new residents, and building the next generation of leaders. On September 11, we joined in remembrance, unity and hope - and I was reminded of how wonderful it feels to strive together toward a shared sense of hope for our nation.
Since I know we share a common belief of creating inclusive, respectful, and just communities, BRIDGES actively works to dismantle all forms of prejudice and discrimination, promoting respect, understanding, and equality for all people. Our role is to educate, advocate, and address conflict relative to issues of discrimination and inequality of individuals and groups within our communities. We help young people to peacefully resolve their disagreemets. We focus on developing and implementing programs to address issues relating to religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, economic and social class, age, ability status, and immigration status. We acknowledge the dynamics of power and privilege, and the role they play in creating attitudes, behavior, and practices and that all members of society are impacted by bias and discrimination.
We're determined to improve the quality of life in our region, and I hope you'll help me to raise the funds that BRIDGES needs to continue its important work toward creating a more just and inclusive community.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Help me to make a difference!
