It’s hard to believe that’s it’s already the beginning of another fiscal year. Time sure does fly by when you’re doing social justice and change work. I spent a lot of time traveling in June 2015, and took long weekends the month of July in an attempt to catch my breath, but it seemed like every time I turned on the television, there’s some major story that took my breath away.

We make “Change” and change-making is hard work that requires passion and dedication, especially when so many folks in the world perpetuate hatred and strengthen the systems of oppression. It’s an honor to work with so many grassroots organizations that are working hard so the rest of us in the region can breathe. Knowing that such grassroots organizations exist gives me hope, and I’m so glad to be able, in turn, tohelp them.

In particular, I’m proud to share with you ACF’s 2015 Grantees. Special thanks to all our grantees. Thanks to each and every one of you for what you do to keep these organizations working for change in our region, whether it’s as a donor, volunteer, or staff member.

Peace, love, and justice,
Margo Miller
