Beloved Family,

The numbers are in! I am inspired by all we accomplished together, and ready to take our movement to new heights in the new year!

Will you join our Beloved Donor Circle? There are 3 days left to make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the year! When you donate before December 31st, we mail you beautiful thank you gifts.

Highlights to celebrate with you:

  • 200+ million people reached through our mobilizations: the People’s Inauguration, the Solidarity Vigil, the Learning Hub, and our 9/11 Anniversary Campaign. All used art, music, poetry, storytelling, teaching and memorial to model beloved community.
  • 150+ organizations partnered and amplified our movement.
  • 115+ press hits! We made headlines from CNN to NBC, NPR to the AP, PBS to People Magazine!
  • 75+ visionaries joined our events, including movement leaders Ai-Jen Poo, Sherrilyn Ifill, and adrienne maree brown; faith leaders Rev. William Barber II, Rabbi Sharon Brous;  thought leaders Baratunde Thurston and Van Jones; artists Kerry Washington, America Ferrera, Ani DiFranco, and many more.
  • 40,000+ people mobilized in our ten-day teaching series to activate revolutionary love
  • 3,000+ messages of solidarity delivered to families of people killed in acts of hate.
  • 150 virtual events with Valarie Kaur reached thousands of people through teachings, interviews, and keynotes.
  • 2 new learning hubs to equip you to practice revolutionary love everyday and understand the impact of 9/11 on communities of color, including 680+ downloads of our educator’s guide
  • #1 LA Times Bestseller awarded to SEE NO STRANGER

Each of these numbers tells a story. About how we broke away from isolation, found a way to process our pain, recommitted to our values, and lifted our gaze to the future with revolutionary love as our North Star. We each have a role in shaping that future. Now with our eyes on that horizon, let’s be brave and bold.

When you donate to the Revolutionary Love Project in your year-end giving, you are funding the future. Please join our Beloved Donor Circle before December 31st!

If you donate before the year’s end, we will mail you beautiful gifts to express our appreciation. With my whole heart, thank you for being on this journey with us.

Our Gifts to Thank You

As an expression of our gratitude, we’re excited to mail you some of our favorite work from 2021!

Our fundraising campaign ends December 31st. Our thank-you gifts will ship to you by March 2022. 

A word…

In our team meetings, we close by leaving each other a single word. It’s a wish to give each other inspiration to carry through the week and remind us that we are connected to each other. As this year comes to a close, we look back with gratitude and look forward with wonder and hope. In the spirit of the season, we wanted to share this ritual with you. Here are our wishes for you at the close of 2021!
