I have been a proud donor to the Headwaters Foundation for more than 10 years. I have also served on its board, and attend several events sponsored by Headwaters to heighten community awareness of the variety of positive work being done by social justice activists. Headwaters serves as an invaluable resource for small grass roots organizations and donors alike interested in finding ways of bringing about positive change in our communities. It was a stretch for me financially, however, I've increased my annual donation this year to Headwaters.

I have volunteered with Headwaters Foundation for Justice in a few different roles over the past two years. I have found their staff to be extremely responsive and incredibly knowledgeable about the communities they serve and the focus areas they fund. They empower individuals to make grants to organizations that affect their lives and the lives of their community members. They are always looking and asking for feedback and take on challenging topics in an effective and thoughtful manner. I appreciate the role they play in the community and look forward to continuing to support their work.

On Saturday, November 21, 2009 an African American Leadership Forum will be held at General Mills starting at 7 a.m. - the group of hand-picked, like-minded participants will insure that Black Minnesotans will achieve the same status-quo engagement while non-profit “fat cats” receive funding that never makes it past the agencies doors. Headwaters executive director Trista Harris has denied about 20 African-American stakeholders the opportunity to be at Saturdays meeting at General Mills. We are hereby moved to ask for a meeting with the board of director of Headwaters to address this heinous actions
