Orgs We Heart

 

Part of our Mission here at STAND San Jose is supporting and signal boosting the amazing work already being done by other organizations here in our Valley. You’ll notice that almost all of our events are partner projects with one or more other groups. We believe strongly in organizing collaboratively in this way. Here are a few of the orgs we love!
