Who We Are …
Public Allies manages a national network of over 10,000 civic leaders and change agents. We engage in development and community-building amongst upstart antiracist leaders, particularly those from diverse or underrepresented backgrounds (including BIPOC individuals and people from varied education levels, diverse socioeconomic statuses, nontraditional sexual or gender identifications, etc.). In the 30 years since our launch, we have operated in up to 24 locations throughout the country, places where our alumni―homegrown leaders―have committed to continued civic leadership.
Our leaders address critical community needs. They are securing greater resources for K-12 education, breaking barriers in public service, building coalitions across organizations and interests, helping heal the wounds caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and so much more.
… And Why We Are Participating in Giving Tuesday
We believe in the power of community-driven initiatives, and Giving Tuesday provides an ideal platform for us to connect with our supporters. Here are a few reasons why we actively participate in this day of giving:
- Celebrating Collective Leadership: By harnessing the collective generosity of individuals, we can fund programs that empower local leaders, create opportunities, and address pressing social issues. By participating in Giving Tuesday, you are showing your appreciation by reinvesting that support back into initiatives that transform lives and communities.
- Amplifying Individual Impact: The beauty of Giving Tuesday lies in its ability to magnify the impact of each donation. Small contributions, when combined, can bring about significant change. This amplification effect allows us to strengthen our network, provide essential resources to emerging leaders, and support innovative, equity-focused projects. Giving Tuesday is also an opportunity for individuals to set up recurring gifts to Public Allies, which supports our work in the most sustainable ways beyond this single day of giving.
