Founded by the team in the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at 92nd Street Yhttp://www.92Y.org, #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 27.
#GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
The CEJJES Institute’s focus is on the promotion of social justice, particularly as it pertains to health, education, and the environmental and material well being of marginalized communities. The Institute gives special attention to the well being of children. The CEJJES Institute works primarily in collaboration with communities of color, particularly those of African descent. The Institute’s premise is that prevailing political economies of race, gender, culture, and sexuality uniquely negatively impact communities of color.
