Social justice movements enable people to come together, make their voices heard and change our world for the better.
When faced with stubborn barriers to achieving healthier, more prosperous communities, movement-building is often the best tool available. When the levers of policy aren’t functioning properly, movements build the will and the power to do the job. And no matter a foundation’s focus or geography, movements can help realize huge gains for us all.
Foundations have played important roles in movements of the past, providing critical support amid the ups and downs of long-term movement-building and social change work. Now more than ever, funders and movements have the opportunity to create meaningful change for those who need it most.
