At Many Hands' Annual Meeting on May 16, members chose Access Youth as the recipient of the 2019 Many Hands $100,000 grant. The three other finalists--CASA/Prince George's County, Greater DC Diaper Bank, and New Endeavors by Women--will each receive a grant of $58,500.
All Many Hands members are warmly invited to our 2019 Annual Meeting to hear presentations by all four finalists and to help select the organization that will receive this year's $100,000 grant.
A capacity crowd gathered on April 11 to discuss Michelle Alexander’s award-winning book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. The lively and thought-provoking discussion covered a wide range of topics, including the war on drugs and its impact on the criminal justice system and the social cost of incarceration.
Join Many Hands for a thought-provoking discussion of this landmark book, moderated by Candice Jones, President and CEO of the Public Welfare Foundation, and documentary producer and Many Hands board member Jill Rosenbaum Meyer.
