The past few years have given us collectively a great deal to think about in terms of problems with our workplace cultures. Big unionization drives across sectors have gotten us to think about exploitative workplace conditions, the mass shift to remote work and the haphazard move to hybrid work have encouraged us to think about communication norms and boundaries, the George Floyd uprisings showed in new relief how racism and white supremacy show up in our workplaces.
Marcus Henderson is a new father with all of the attendant responsibilities, hopes, and dreams for his family. He wants to take care of his family, make sure that they get the right kinds of opportunities, and do his part to honor those that came before him. A few months ago, Henderson stepped up to take the role of the New York City Father of the House of LaBeija, which has over fifty members across generations.

At Fractured Atlas, we are dedicated to helping our community of artists and arts organizations get the resources you need in order to bring your vision to life. Often, this means fundraising.
Artists and arts organizations looking to start your next year off strong are probably considering an end-of-year fundraiser. End-of-year fundraising is a chance for you to connect with your current and previous donors, thank them for their support, and ask them to give one last time before the new year. For artists and arts organizations with either 501(c)(3) status or a fiscal sponsor, it’s also a time for your donors to make their final tax-deductible donations before the end of the year.
