We're thrilled to be past the halfway point! We have raised $2,725 from 22 donors. Thank you to every one of you! We have three weeks left, so please help us spread the word. You can share on social media directly from the campaign page :)
Our campaign video didn't have room for our current Fellows to talk about their work, so we created another short one where they introduce themselves and their work (except a couple who were away!).
For those of you in the Bay Area, this month you have a chance to see our current Fellows in action.
Renee Mack, second year Fellow and PhD Candidate in Social Welfare, will be the respondent at an event on Thursday, April 11, at 11am: "Medicalization and Demedicalization of the Homeless Mentally Ill."
