Thank you for supporting
JUSTICE
at our 15th annual

Building
Community
Luncheon

Thank you to the 750 guests who helped us raise over $290,000 at our April 10, 2015 Building Community Luncheon! We believe that if we want to end poverty, we have to work for JUSTICE. When our planned featured guest, Jessica Williams – writer/actor and correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart – fell ill had to cancel, local R&B/Hip Hop artist Wanz (Michael Wansley) gave us all the gift of a moving performance of his very personal song, "I Will," about overcoming adversity through community support.

Guests also learned what Solid Ground is doing now to end poverty, heard about our vision for the future, and found out how to get involved. As poet Audre Lorde eloquently put it, we recognize that “there is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.”

This is why we're dedicated to achieving housing justice, food justice, racial justice and economic justice to create long-lasting social change and equitable opportunities for all to thrive.
