Haymarket People’s Fund
The Fund is committed to strengthening the movement for social justice throughout the six states of New England -- WHERE. The Fund gives money to grassroots groups of local people who believe that change is possible; that communities that come together with a vision of justice can get the job done provided they have the resources. Named after the Haymarket Affair, the 1886 working people’s event in Chicago, which paved the way for the 8-hour workday, the Fund envisions a world free of racism and other oppressions where peace and cooperation flourish, where people are valued for their gifts and able to bring their whole selves to humanity. It also envisions a world where vibrant communities thrive and different cultures are celebrated and where opportunities are equally shared while honoring the earth and all within in it. The Fund offers Sustaining Grants for grassroots social justice organizing work taking place in New England as well as Urgent Response grants. The deadline is for the Sustaining Grants. Requests for Urgent Response grants are accepted on an ongoing basis. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
