Criminal Justice Grant (Due Feb. 1, 2018 5:00pm PST)
Two-year grant of $10,000 per year. This grant will support community organizing work that addresses the intersections of race, class, and gender in the systems that criminalize low-income communities and communities of color. We invite proposals from organizations that are led and directed by those most impacted by the criminal justice system, and who are working for systemic change.  For more information contact Rebecca Allen, Project Manager –
(NEW) Coalitions & Alliances Grant (Due Feb. 13, 2018 5:00pm PST. Application will be available in mid December)
One-year grant of up to $20,000. Building strong coalitions to win policy change, shift the political landscape, and build strong cross-sector progressive movements is key to achieving social change. This grant will support coalition strategies that prioritize leadership and representation from grassroots community organizing groups that are led and directed by the people most impacted by the issues they work on.
