About Us

ABOUT JUST BEGINNINGS COLLABORATIVE

Just Beginnings Collaborative (JBC) supports survivor-centered efforts to heal from, prevent, and ultimately end child sexual abuse (CSA). Our commitment to this horizon distinguishes our conception of a donor collaborative as activism within the philanthropic space. We want to challenge the felt inevitably of the issue by pulling on narrative and cultural threads. In a threefold process, we want to 1) disentangle children’s stories from institutional models, 2) weave them into the broader tapestry of other anti-violence movements, and 3) re-weave them into the fabric of a world without CSA.

We have long understood that those closest to the issue often have the most creative solutions, which is why JBC centers survivors who identify as QT BIPOC, BIPOC, those with disabilities, and those without permanent residence. We honor and recognize their ongoing efforts to name cycles of systemic violence rooted in entrenched norms and social structures, especially amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic and heightened visibility of longstanding racial inequities. We are enthusiastically pursuing a vision for an intersectional movement of organizations that are properly resourced and have the capacity to end child sexual abuse.

JBC operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (www.rockpa.org).
