August 23, 2021 — The Wallace Center is proud to share our 2020 Impact Report. This report highlights the ingenuity, hard work and dedication that we, and more than 25 of our partners in service, demonstrated last year amid COVID-19. As the world responded to the double pandemics of the virus and racial injustice, our team—spread across the U.S.—banded together to respond to our partners in service.
Internally, it was a time of continued evolution and introspection for the staff. We asked ourselves what it means to be an anti-racist, human-centered organization and intentionally set out to operationalize our values. You’ll read that we shifted to a co-directorship model and clarified our mission, vision, and values, while pledging to create leadership at every level within our organization.
The projects and initiatives you’ll read about within these pages happened because of your support during a uniquely trying year.
We are deeply grateful to all of you who engage with our programs, support our staff, and share our vision for the future of food and farming systems in the United States.
