The Defending the Dream Fund Announces Second Round RFP Release


September 7 – Langston Hughes’ classic poem, Let America Be America Again, could be considered a prescient reflection of our current times, but it is also a reminder of the long tumultuous struggle to achieve the idyllic dream of America. This hopeful dream and prospect of a fair, just, inclusive and equitable America has been usurped by a frightening and cynical nightmare with the election of the 45th President of the United States.  We are in for the fight of our lives to defend the dreams of a more just and equitable America that is in severe jeopardy in our present social and political reality.

In response to these challenging times, the Hill-Snowdon Foundation, General Service Foundation, Jesse Smith Noyes Foundation, and the Whitman Institute and our other partners are pleased to announce the 2nd round of the Defending the Dream Fund. The Defending the Dream Fund supports organizing to address deleterious policies and institutional practices that are either the direct result of or that have been emboldened, aided and abetted by the policies and positions of the new federal administration.
