DescriptionThe Instituteís Social Justice Fund supports grassroots activist projects in the United States and around the world. It gives priority to those with small budgets and little access to more mainstream funding sources. The Fundís priority is to support direct grassroots activism and organizing; groups with diverse, representative and democratic leadership structures; groups that have or can obtain sufficient economic and in-kind support to carry out their regular work, but need additional support to carry out a project or build capacity. The Fund is especially interested in funding efforts to end the violence of borders and the criminalization of immigrants; abolish the death penalty, shut down prison industrial complex and redefine criminal justice; confront institutionalized repression against racial, ethnic, gender-based, and lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/queer communities; support progressive workers movements and the eradication of poverty; and dismantle the war machine, end state-sponsored terrorism and expose the dangers of nuclear power. Applicants must download a preliminary application form on the Web site and send it to the Institute via email.
