Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment

There are many reasons to love the Rose Foundation. For one, the New Voices Are Rising program cultivates youth leaders from under-represented communities around the Bay Area. This program strives to bring greater awareness to issues of environmental justice and gives the leaders of tomorrow the skills to to ensure their communities are no longer overlooked. Generational change will be achieved through programs like these, funded by changemakers like you. - Pete
