The twin pandemics of COVID-19 and systemic racism have spurred a new moment of reckoning and national uprising for racial justice. Hear from three funder colleagues on how they are responding to the call for action to build real power for Black communities and demand bold systems and institutional change in civic engagement, criminal justice, employment and social supports.
Will Cordery will share more about the M4BL Donor Organizing Committee and recent effort to raise $50 million for M4BL in 2020. Samantha Tweedy will share more about Robin Hood’s “Power Fund,” a new initiative to fund and elevate nonprofit leaders of color who share Robin Hood’s mission of increasing mobility from poverty, while addressing the interplay of racial justice and economic justice through their work. Aisha Alexander-Young will share more about the Meyer Foundation’s efforts to center racial equity in their grantmaking.
