The 20201 Transformation Calendar: Online Edition
We invited 13 local artists to share their vision and voice with us in the inaugural 2021 Transformation Calendar. It was a project we designed to express our appreciation to the HFJ donor community—and to show love to our community’s creatives. We asked each contributor to share art and thoughts that respond to the idea of TRANSFORMATION.
The result, curated by Leslie Barlow, was printed and mailed to donors in late 2020. Starting this month, we are introducing the calendar on our website for our whole community. Please visit the online edition <[link removed]> of the 2021 Transformation Calendar and follow us on social media as we amplify each artist monthly.

As Muslim and Jewish women, we're socialized to believe awful stereotypes about one another. When we come together in resistance to create change in our state, we actively combat systems of white supremacy and white nationalism.
Join us virtually this year to fight for things we all care about, a slate of policy priorities to be decided at our Pre-Legislative Session Policy Agenda Meeting ( [link removed] <[link removed]>). Please register for our 3rd annual lobby day here: [link removed] <[link removed]>
