Headwaters Foundation for Justice is proud to announce its Social Change Fund grantees for 2014. Organizations received $10,000 in general operating support. The community-led grantmaking process included 20 volunteers who collectively contributed over 1,000 hours. 
 
The Foundation is a catalyst for social, racial, economic and environmental justice.  Established in 1984, we believe that the power for fundamental social change is in the hands of ordinary people. Through grantmaking and organizational assistance, Headwaters focuses on grassroots efforts, engaging and partnering with a committed community of donors and allies in its work.
 
We are proud to support organizations working with grassroots leaders to build power and change our state. Our grantees demonstrate a willingness to form genuine partnerships and unite around a shared vision of economic, social, racial and environmental justice. In 2014 the Headwaters Foundation's grantees had many legislative wins including the passage of the Safe Schools bill, the Women's Economic Security Act, a bill to get guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, raising the minimum wage and increasing access to voting through online registration.
•Organizing Apprenticeship Project (OAP) aligns with grassroots community groups, primarily in communities of color, to train organizers to create and lead effective campaigns. 
•Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en la Lucha (CTUL) is an organization of workers and for workers (primarily Spanish-speaking immigrants), committed to changing low-wage industry injustices by challenging the root causes of economic injustice. 
•Protect Minnesota is comprised of advocates, activists, and organizers devoted to addressing gun violence by changing the social, economic, political, and racial lenses through which the issue is discussed.
