Local Action Saves Lives
With the Fund’s support, courageous grassroots activists around the world kept their communities safe and accurately informed during COVID-19 — while also tackling the systemic inequalities that left their communities vulnerable in the first place.
By the end of 2020, we are aiming to raise $200,000 for frontline activists to fuel the local action that helps people break free from poverty, discrimination, and oppression. Fund the front lines of real change.
Your donation will help local activists save lives and build back a better world.
