The 2020-21 Forced Migration & Displacement Giving Project wrapped up in April of 2021.
The 2020-21 Forced Migration & Displacement Giving Project supported grassroots organizing to disrupt forced migration and displacement and build new and/or innovative systems for community interdependence and wellbeing. “Forced migration and displacement” describes what happens when people are coerced to move from one place to another against their will, as the direct or indirect result of the actions of people with more institutional power. People should be able to put down roots and thrive where they feel at home. Communities build power and wellbeing when their interdependence isn’t interrupted by racism, poverty, and violence.
“One thing that sticks with me is how much I enjoy and get energy from these issues. I came in tired, and now feel energized.”
