The Fund to Advance Racial Equity was established in 2021 at the San Joaquin Community by a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in response to input from community leaders. The Fund aims to support organizations that are on the front lines of social and racial justice to develop their leadership, learn from one another, and support the wellness and healing of their teams as they serve San Joaquin County’s most marginalized residents.
