Seeds of Change 2022


On behalf of the board and staff at Crossroads Fund, we want to thank you for your support of our annual fundraiser, Seeds of Change: Funding Bold Movements for Justice!  You showed up for us during the two-day virtual event and participated in our online auction and for all this and more we are sincerely grateful. We hope that our intention to center celebration, joy and Black women's voices came through.

Because of the support of our Host Committee, sponsors, advertisers, and online auction donors, we were able to pool resources from over 300 donors and spread our message far and wide. You can now view the program on-demand and share it with your friends.

If you would like to make one final contribution to Seeds of Change 2022, you can do so below.





We kicked off our two-day virtual celebration honoring our 2022 Awardees and enjoyed a performance by Chicago comedian Gwen La Roka.

This year we presented the Ron Sable Award for Activism to Lucy Parsons Labs, a collaborative that sheds light on the intersection of digital rights and on-the-streets issues. The Donald F. Erickson Synapses Award to Truthout, a nonprofit news organization dedicated to providing independent reporting and commentary on a diverse range of social justice issues. The Lynda J. Tipton Memorial Award for Social Justice to A Long Walk Home is a Black-led art organization that advocates for racial and gender justice.

Our special guest was feminist and writer Angela Davis in a rich and thought-provoking conversation with Scheherazade Tillet, Tracie D. Hall, and Jane Kimondo.
