The Movement for Black Lives is awarding $75,000 to 12 Black-led organizations that are expanding democracy and building political power in defense of Black lives.
The Electoral Justice League Fellowship strives to enhance the capacity of Black-led organizations to expand and mobilize the Black electorate, invest in Black communities, and reimagine a democracy that is transparent, participatory and community-led.
We must take a multifaceted approach to securing our freedom — a radical freedom for safe communities, economic security, freedom to earn a livelihood, freedom to live a healthy life, freedom from exploitation and violence, and a freedom to develop a true democracy. We believe that our power is too great, our voices too necessary, our lives too valuable to leave out even one tool in our struggle for freedom.
The fellowship runs from August 2021 to December 2022. The application deadline is Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 2:59 a.m. EST.
