Long-term partners include Causa Justa :: Just Cause, LeftRoots (Bay Area Chapter), and La Colectiva de Mujeres in SF. Lately we’ve also worked with Black Teacher Project in Oakland, SRO Families Collaborative in SF, ROC Restaurant Opportunities Center, and the Stop the Santa Rita Jail Expansion Collaborative. We work with any group that is 1) grassroots, 2) primarily led by & composed by low-income women, women of color, or immigrant women or QTPOC families, and 3) fighting for more than reform — as our capacity allows.
