National CAPACD Lovingly Remembers Darshan Khalsa - National CAPACD

It is with heavy hearts that National CAPACD shares the loss of Darshan Khalsa, a former staff member, on the morning of December 13, 2021 at the young age of 48, after struggling to fight endometrial cancer diagnosed earlier this year.

As recalled by our former Executive Director, Lisa Hasegawa, “Darshan served as the first Deputy Director of National CAPACD, serving at a time of critical growth and expansion for the organization. She was a fierce advocate, prolific fundraiser, and brilliant strategist, but I will remember her most for her wonderful sense of humor, and her deep belief that our movement organizations needed to be humanistic and healthy. She made a profound impact on so many organizations, often working behind the scenes, taking pride in the success of those she supported, coached, and mentored. She will be forever remembered and dearly missed by her National CAPACD family.”

Wells Fargo. We made a way. Together.

We need to help small businesses get back to growing again. For small businesses facing financial hardships and other business challenges, having access to trusted experts can be a critical turning point for getting back to growth. Thanks to Wells Fargo's #OpenForBusinessFund grant, small business owners can look forward to recovering and emerging from the pandemic even stronger and more resilient.

Wells Fargo’s Open for Business Fund is a roughly $420 million small business recovery effort created to help entrepreneurs stay open, maintain jobs and grow. Through this initiative, Wells Fargo is deploying grants to nonprofits and Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) to provide small business owners with greater access to capital, technical expertise and recovery resources, with an emphasis on supporting small businesses most disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

Together we can help brighten the holidays for small businesses. #HopeUSA

Small business owners are finding a way to stay open. Learn how they’re enduring and the ways we can support your business, too.

Calling all artists!

*On abolition: “(PIC abolition) is a political vision with the goal of eliminating imprisonment, policing, and surveillance and creating lasting alternatives to punishment and imprisonment.”
-- Critical Resistance

“(abolition) seeks to undo the way of thinking and doing things that sees prison and punishment as solutions for all kinds of social, economic, political, behavioral and interpersonal problems...it is reorganizing how we live our lives together in the world.”
-- Ruth Wilson Gilmore
