Girls of Color Fund

Maria Ylvisaker
Communications Coordinator

We are proud to share a recently released report on the first two years of the NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color, a funders collaborative aimed at supporting young women of color and transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) youth.

As I approach my two year anniversary as Vice President of Programs here at Brooklyn Community Foundation, I’ve had the opportunity to not only lead our programmatic work, but also reflect on what is the true power and potential of Brooklyn Community Foundation. 

While grantmaking seems like the obvious answer, as I consider all the tools in our toolbox, the use of advocacy emerges as one of the most important levers that we have as we strive to make Brooklyn fair and just. 

Brooklyn Community Foundation is pleased to welcome Renée Joslyn as the coordinator for our new Reproductive Justice Activists initiative, supported through our Girls of Color Fund. 

 

Today, we are thrilled to announce our new Reproductive Justice Activists (RJA) program along with the opening of the online application for the inaugural cohort.
