INVESTING IN A BLACK MOVEMENT ECOSYSTEM
At Solidaire Network, we believe that Black-led social change is not just about justice for Black communities, but also about a broad and deep societal transformation for all. We operate in deep solidarity with grassroots organizers in Black communities, working to coordinate deeper and longer-term resource mobilization for a network of Black-led movement efforts.
Between 2013 and 2019, our members moved over $7 million through Solidaire directly and over $20 million in aligned giving to the Black-led social change ecosystem. In 2020 and 2021, the Janisha R. Gabriel Movement Protection Fund moved over $3 million to support the digital and security needs of majority Black-led work. And now, through the Black Liberation Pooled Fund, Solidaire is moving $14 million over two years to Black-led organizations and projects working towards Black freedom.
The Black Liberation Pooled Fund (BLPF) pools resources to allocate to the powerful ecosystem of Black-led social change organizations around the country. Through multi-year grants, supporting general operating funds, the BLPF will fortify Black resistance organizing, embolden the imagination and creation of liberatory Black futures, and invest in the development of Black movement infrastructure.
