We are excited to announce the 2019 Movement R&D Grantees.
This year, we received 90 nominations and 50 full applications for groups doing a wide range of reproductive justice work across the southeast and southwest. The 23 Movement R&D Grantees reflect our commitment to supporting innovative work that is taking place in historically under-resourced communities, and to groups that are working on a range of intersectional reproductive justice work. This includes birth justice, abortion access, environmental justice, building the power of the ballroom community, migrants organizing across borders for health justice, leadership development for communities pushed to the margins and more.
From building a grantmaking team of movement leaders doing reproductive justice work in the south, to following their guidance throughout the nominations, application and decision making process, this grants cycle was truly a powerful testament to putting our values of power sharing and movement accountability in to deeper practice.
