The Justice Fund is a portfolio of effective Black led and centered grassroots organizations working at the intersection of electoral politics and justice reform.
Change is coming! With the support of our donors we have set the stage for unprecedented efforts for real change across the United States. We have 4 main areas of focus that we know will lead to a progressive decade. We are humbled and grateful for your interest / participation in our work.
We need a federal congress that sees systemic racism as an issue that must be tackled. That’s why we are funding community organizers now that can help reform-focused candidates win primaries and generals in important upcoming senate races.
Governors, as the executive power in their state, can advance racial justice dramatically. Governors can grant clemency, appoint reformers as judges and on parole boards, make executive orders and re-orient state budgets to support impacted communities. By focusing on Governor races in swing-states, we continue to build the political power we need to win the 2024 Presidential election as well.
Our Justice System, the tool most often used to enforce oppression and disenfranchisement, is primarily run at the city, county, and state level. Therefore, investments in justice reform means supporting organizers in cities and counties with critical mayoral, city council, judge, sheriff and district attorney elections this upcoming cycle.
When crisis happens, we want to be able to support the community leaders at the center of it. Crisis can be opportunities to put pressure on the adoption of less oppressive and / or more equitable policies.
The Justice Fund currently includes:
Additional organizations will be added over the next few weeks as they complete vetting with our partner, the Movement Voter PAC (MVP). As organizations reach their funding goals MVP will rotate them out of the portfolio, either adding new organizations that meet our funding criteria or concentrating donations to help close the funding gaps of the other organizations in our portfolio.
To make sure donations go where they’re needed most, we’ve partnered with the Movement Voter PAC (MVP), which works to strengthen progressive power at all levels of government by helping donors support the most promising community-based organizations, with a focus on youth and communities of color. MVP supports hundreds of organizations that turn out unlikely voters and organize communities to grow their power and create transformation, from policy to the streets. MVP selected organizations for the Justice Fund portfolio based on these criteria:
