We envision a world where racism, economic exploitation, and disregard for the wellbeing of the planet no longer destroys whole communities to benefit a few; a world where all people have power to shape the decisions that affect their lives, and to flourish.
Solidaire works to fundamentally change economic, political and cultural power systems by growing and nurturing a network of resource organizers to accompany movements for social and racial justice.
We will continue to grow the Solidaire Network membership base throughout the United States.
Leverage Solidaire’s giving mechanisms to increase donor investments in a
range of power building strategies for intersectional and interdependent movements. Serve as a critical resource mobilization arm for movements.
Strengthen donor practices through praxis based political education and peer learning to shape a new paradigm that positively transforms relationships between donors and movements.
Solidaire began with the desire to answer a single question: What is the role of financial resources in supporting social movements that are fighting for deep systemic change?
In 2011, movements shook the globe. From the Arab Spring to anti-austerity protests in Europe, and Occupy Wall Street here at home, we witnessed the power of collective action – of individuals and communities taking to the streets and putting their bodies on the line to make their voices heard.
