Jobin-Leeds Partnership for Democracy and Education, LLC title bar


The Partnership starts and nurtures programs and projects that share a common goal: to build a more just and inclusive society. By using a varied approach—from developing accountable leaders to cultivating voters to organizing around pressing issues—our programs and projects work synergistically to transform our democracy.

Access Strategies Fund
With tremendous results, Access funds grassroots organizations in historically excluded communities. Access grantees focus on creating equity— race, gender and income — at the grassroots and structural level using our democracy. See Solidarity Economy Initiative, Women's Public Leadership, Civic Engagement

Impact Investing
Investors help instigate the world they want to see through financing cooperatives and corporations designed to have a social impact. The Partnership focuses on growing our investments in women-led, worker-owned companies, organic farms, and green energy. See Pipeline Angels, Next Wave Impact Fund

Maria's List
Maria’s List combs the country for strong champions running for office at the local, state and federal level who promote bold social and economic policies and represent low-income, underserved communities in politics. See Progressive Mass Funder Collaborative, Women Donors Action Fund

Partnership Loft
Located in the heart of Central Square in Cambridge, MA, the Partnership Loft launched in October 2019 as a collaborative workspace dedicated to social justice. We hope to bring together the people of Greater Boston that want to make an intentional impact on their community. Our partners have laid a foundation of trust, networks, and impact on a local and national level. We hope to harvest political leaders, non-profits, businesses, innovation, movements etc., that strive to make a difference.

Schott Foundation for Public Education
The award-winning Schott Foundation brings together parents, students, educators, funders and policymakers to advocate for excellent resources in our public schools and to expand the public conversation from student “achievement” to “opportunity.”

When We Fight, We Win!
Published in 2016, WHEN WE FIGHT WE WIN!: Twenty-First-Century Social Movements and the Activists That Are Transforming Our World, is written by longtime social activist Greg Jobin-Leeds who joined forces with AgitArte—a collective of artists and organizers—to capture the stories, philosophies, tactics, and art of today's leading social change movements.
