Funders for Justice Announces Inaugural Advisory Committee of Field Leaders
Since we were founded three years ago, a pillar of FFJ has always been close partnership and guidance from field partners. We are incredibly proud to announce our inaugural cohort of FFJ Advisors. These nine leaders were selected in recognition of their expertise and leadership in movements for racial and gender justice, in police accountability campaigns and anti-criminalization movements, and efforts to inform more impactful grantmaking for community power-building.
The Funders for Justice Advisors for 2017-2018:
- Jenny Arwade, Communities United
- Charlene Carruthers, Black Youth Project 100
- Stephanie Guilloud, Project South
- Kris Hayashi, Transgender Law Center
- Mary Hooks, Southerners on New Ground
- Anthony Newby, Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing for Change
- Simran Noor, Center for Social Inclusion
- Zach Norris, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
- Marbre Stahly-Butts, Movement for Black Lives and Law for Black Lives
In their role as advisors, they will guide FFJ’s work in lifting up community safety and justice models, join FFJ for national panels and workshops, and share their visions for change and what’s needed from philanthropy in this moment. We hope you will look to them as thought leaders and partners in your own work as well.
