This is HJC's 20th anniversary. With a recent leadership transition and facing an increasingly competitive funding environment now is the time for us to assess where we are, where we need to be, and how to get there.
We are a very small organization that is in the process of stabilizing our finances after the loss of several major funders. We are optimistic about the future but in order to be successful, we need to create new pathers to sustainability. A SWOT analysis is an important step.
We know from talking to our community partners that people value our work. However, the organization has not done enough to diversify its funding or keep up with the changing environment. We need a better understanding of how we fit into the broader landscape if we want to continue to use law and policy as a tool to address injustice.
