Arcus' 2019 annual reporting reflects the unprecedented and unique character of a global reality shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic and characterized by virtual communication. In addition to topline financial information and grant listings of the past year, the report features perspectives on the state of our mission and prospects for success from Jon Stryker, our president and founder; Annette Lanjouw, our CEO; and 17 of our movement partners from around the world.
Arcus Foundation’s annual reporting lifts the voices of courageous activists standing up for environmental and social justice, and demonstrates the impact of our partners in pushing for LGBTQ human rights and the conservation and well-being of great apes and gibbons.
The year 2018 brought into sharp focus a range of newly emerging or worsening threats, including a rollback on transgender and immigrants rights in the United States; a proposed major hydropower project in central Guinea that would displace thousands of chimpanzees; and a staggering number of murders of LGBTI people in Central America, and worldwide. But the year also proved--once again--that the individuals, communities, and movements that courageously defend human rights and work to conserve the world's apes are making a positive difference, and saving lives.
The year 2017 undoubtedly brought many challenges to the lives and liberties that we and our grantee partners are working hard to protect. But it also demonstrated the unflagging commitment of those fighting on the frontlines of our human rights and conservation movements.
