Liberty Hill Launches Justice for All Awareness Campaign

Below is an article originally published on July 29, 2021. Go to Liberty Hill's company page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

The racial and economic injustices Liberty Hill and our partners have fought for so long have moved squarely to the forefront of the public consciousness with a fierce urgency.

We know the fight for justice and equity is going to take all of us working together to support the movement for change. For more than four decades, Liberty Hill has been your dedicated partner in this fight, building people power and supporting the leadership of those closest to pain and injustice.

And now we are working to expand the Liberty Hill Community even more, bringing new supporters into our Home for Progressive Los Angeles to expand the impact of our mission.

Today, we are excited to announce the launch of our "Justice for All" public awareness campaign designed to raise awareness and funds to support local grassroots activism and organizing led by those most impacted by systemic oppression.

We know the power of this work.

The funds we raise support the critical community organizing—led by people of color—that has the ability to change policies and lives across our region.

Our "Justice for All" campaign seeks to raise awareness of the critical issues facing Los Angeles as we deal with the effects of a global pandemic and existing systemic problems facing our region.

Liberty Hill stands ready to rally our community in support of local leaders and grassroots organizations fighting for a variety of policy proposals that can change L.A. for the better. From banning toxic neighborhood oil drilling—which disproportionately affects low-income communities of color—to the creation of the country's largest youth development system focused on care, not punishment, and the fight to protect vulnerable tenants amidst the housing crisis, Liberty Hill's grantee partners are well positioned to make change possible.

The digitally-focused "Justice for All" campaign will highlight the grassroots activism and on-the-ground successes of Liberty Hill's partners, while expanding knowledge of the Foundation's work to power these movements and amplify their work for greater impact.

The campaign is designed to drive new supporters into our community to learn more about our work, support our mission, and take action on the critical issues facing Los Angeles today.

Stay tuned for more info about the campaign!

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.


Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

While neurodiversity is a concept that is gaining more awareness, many employers have still not fully grasped the importance (and benefits) of understanding neurodiversity and how to effectively incorporate and retain neurodivergent individuals in their organizations.

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year.
