Seeds of Change 2011


Our 2011 benefit was a success! Over 400 donors, activists, grantees and friends of Crossroads Fund gathered on Friday, April 1st at the Chicago Cultural Center to celebrate another year's work for social change. We were proud to honor the Whittier Parent Committee and Dr. Quentin Young with the Ron Sable Award for Activism and the Immigrant Youth Justice League with the Donald F. Erickson Synapses Award.
