DescriptionThe Institute?s Social Justice Fund makes grants for grassroots activist projects in the U.S. and around the world. Priority is given to projects with small budgets and little access to more mainstream funding sources. Preference is given to programs and projects that end the violence of borders and the criminalization of immigrants; abolish the death penalty, shut down the prison industrial complex and redefine criminal justice; confront institutionalized repression against racial, ethnic, gender-based, and lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgendered/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. The Institute prioritizes direct grassroots activism and organizing; groups with diverse, representative and democratic leadership structures; and groups that have or can obtain enough economic and in-kind support to carry out their regular work, but need additional support to carry out a project or build capacity.
