How Funders Can Deepen Their Support for a Black-led Movement Ecosystem
In a new article for Inside Philanthropy, Rajasvini Bhansali, executive director of Solidaire Network, and Nwamaka Agobo, CEO of The Kataly Foundation, shed light on how the two groups have been mobilizing resources to build a Black-led movement ecosystem. They outline five priorities for supporting Black liberation work in an effort to encourage other grantmakers to intensify their efforts. They write:
Supporting Black liberation calls on philanthropy to liberate capital and wealth in new ways so we can build a durable Black movement for dignified Black lives…
It’s time to leave behind the rules and fund social movements so that Black-led groups have what they need to change our collective society for good. Ten years from now, when we who believe in freedom, human dignity and justice look back, let us be in a position to celebrate that when this movement asked us to step up and step in for our collective liberation, we replied with a most historical and resounding yes.
