Meet this year’s winners!
Keir C. and Jamie L.
Keir and Jamie joined forces to support The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services. RAICES fights on the frontlines for immigration rights, including the right to seek a safe and secure future for their families. They will use the grant to help RAICES fund various initiatives including a hotline that connects immigrant communities to social services, and the implementation of a brand elevation strategy to amplify the center’s message in social media and beyond.
Victor will partner with Kindred, an organization committed to helping children and families thrive regardless of economic situation, racial or ethnic identity, or ability. Victor and Kindred will use the grant funds to compensate a participatory design team of parents, teachers and students, to create a future vision and roadmap of strategic decisions and experiments, and to create a toolkit that will be shared with other schools.
Michael Alfuso is a cinematographer who will partner with The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, which fights to ensure the future of America’s iconic wild horses and burros and the Western public lands where they roam. They will use the funds to allow Michael to document the government’s efforts to remove wild horses from public lands. The goal is to raise awareness and to let people know there is a better way to manage these animals on public land.
