NETWORK FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE

Educate, Engage, Activate


We are excited to announce that the Network has once again been selected by the Winchester Savings Bank as one of five local nonprofits in their World of Good community voting campaign! Between now and December 31, 2021 you can vote for the organization of your choice. At the end of the voting period, $2,000 will be distributed based on how many votes or ‘likes’ each of the nonprofits receives. For example, if the Network receives 25% of the total ‘likes’ received during the course of the campaign, we would receive 25% of the pledged dollar amount. The more votes we receive, the more money we receive. You can vote once each day. Vote here.
