UUJAZ is funded entirely through donations from individuals, congregations, and fundraising events here in Arizona, plus short-term grants from the UU Funding Panel, UU the Vote, and UUSC. Your generosity sustains our mission, programming, operations, growth, and our ability to respond quickly and flexibly to your needs, and the needs of our communities. Thank you for your continued support!
All one-time donations in the month of June 2020 went to create an Organizing Fellowship fund for Black Lives Matter Phoenix Metro. Our partners at BLM Phx have been tirelessly working to keep folks safe at protests, bailing folks out of jails, raising over $20,000 for the Black Mesa community on the Navajo Nation, organizing mutual aid efforts, and are part of the coalition who fought for community oversight for the Phoenix PD. Thanks to your generous donations, BLM Phoenix organizer Miriam receives a $500 monthly stipend as our 2020 Organizing Fellow.
