Meet the Social Justice Fund for Ventura County’s 2020 Fellowship Grantees
- Sara Guillen has a project to identify nutritional needs in Oxnard to help launch a healthy food project with the Westminster Free Clinic. She will also share the results of her research with local leaders to raise awareness of the need for healthy food in our most marginalized communities in the county.
- Elibet Valencia Munoz has a project to create a video and photographic documentary of a traditional Mixteco Dance “La Danza de los Diablos.” Through this work she hopes to honor the Mixteco culture, conduct exhibitions throughout Ventura County and create material for ethnic studies in our schools.
- Kativa Rai from Justice in the Classroom, a group of high schools and college students who will receive a capacity grant to help them pay for a zoom account, non-profit status and a web site. This group is seeking to end the lack of diversity, equity and inclusion across schools in Ventura County.
SJFVC provides funds to emerging leaders who have a passion for social justice and a project impacting Ventura County. Meet three of the 2020 Social Justice Fellows who will talk about their projects followed by an interactive Q & A.
