This years list of organizations to support during the holiday season reflect the difficult economic times experienced by many. Some on the list are repeaters, that get a shout out because of the good work they do. We know its difficult for many people to give this year but we do not want to forget about the many community organizations and non-profits on the front lines of social justice and economic equality. If you're looking for a tax deduction and an organization to support these are a few to consider.

The Joseph Littles-Nguzo Saba Charter School in West Palm Beach Florida, is helping children reach new heights from the bottom rung of the educational ladder. The children that populate this school are those whom the Public Schools System has labeled as unable to learn, and allegedly didn't want to teach. Negative labeling and low expectations led to frustrated parents. They have turned to the Joseph Littles-Nguzo Saba Charter School to provide a better future for their children.

Right to the City emerged in 2007 as a unified response to gentrification and a call to halt the displacement of low-income people, LGBTQ, and youths of color from their historic urban neighborhoods. We are a national alliance of racial, economic and environmental justice organizations.
