Residents in Montana had a magnicent view of the mountains. They made Windcall an awesome experience.

Windcall helps community and labor organizers be resilient, practice transformative leadership, & improve the vitality of social movements.

Please join me in giving to Windcall. Each fall, Windcall has a fundraising campaign and many of you have supported us in the past. This year we are conducting an online campaign, and each dollar we raise by Saturday, December 8th, up to $13,000, will be matched by three major donors. The clock is ticking and I'm asking you for your help.

If you've been working in any field for several years, you can reach a moment when stepping back from the work can be the VERY best thing you can do for yourself. I was one of those workers in 2000, when I was awarded a Windcall Residency. It was an amazing and transformative experience for me. Though Windcall is for organizers and social activists, I think everyone should have the benefit of a similar experience.

That's why I'm hoping you’ll join me in giving to Windcall, especially since three donors are matching every dollar you give by Saturday, December 8th, up to $13,000.

When I went to Windcall, I was overwhelmed and stressed by life, in general. Away for 2 weeks from my work and deep in nature with 3 other organizers, I:

1. Realized that rest & renewal carries me forward as I work on justice issues.

2. Learned that my creativity helps me stay strong and resilient as an organizer long past my Residency.

3. Came to understand that movements are only as good as the resiliency and the vision of those within them. I get it now for myself and for everyone I work with.

Windcall is there for organizers of color, organizers working in low-income communities, and organizers working under all kinds of conditions all over the country. And Windcall plans to grow to support organizers with coaching and other supports to help them move ahead after their Residencies AND to inspire resiliency and transformative leadership practices throughout our movements.

Please give and help me meet my goal and Windcall meet the match by December 8th.
