Funders Respond: Funding Black Feminist Movements
From the MacArthur Foundation, "Black feminist organizers are addressing the systemic challenges facing democracy, yet Black feminist organizations receive less than half of one percent of foundation giving world-wide. MacArthur, along with several other funders, is supporting an effort to rectify this disparity. 'We work on many different issues, but we are united by a common conviction: It’s time to fund Black feminist movements like we want them to win.'"
"Funding for Black feminists and prioritizing Black women, trans, and gender nonconforming people is a key factor in lasting, positive change in society. MacArthur-supported Black Feminist Fund is working toward a safer more just society that creates sustained resources and investment to advance Black feminist work, with ripple effects for all people who hold intersecting identities."
