“The Bay Area Justice Funders Network is a community that supports me as a funder to lead with my values to implement social justice grantmaking practice. It's an intentional space for funders to take coordinated action to advance a justice agenda within philanthropy.” - Lateefah Simon, President, Akonadi Foundation
