Rex Foundation Newsletters

Our Director, Sandy Sohcot, worked on a series of newsletters while she was Executive Director of the Rex Foundation. TWAICB started as a Rex Foundation program and then grantee when it grew. These newsletters give perspectives and resources on the work that we do and ideas for reflecting and taking action to fulfill human rights and social justice.

In 2014, The World As It Could Be became a Program of the Alameda County Deputy Sheriffs’ Activities League (DSAL). Read more about our program becoming part of DSAL
