The Hill-Snowdon Foundation, in partnership with the General Service Foundation, is launching the Defending the Dream Fund to provide expedited resources to grassroots organizing groups that are working to protect targeted communities in the Trump era and defend the core principles of equity and justice.
In solidarity with the National Day of Action and Resistance, the Hill-Snowdon Foundation will close its office on May 1st, 2017 – May Day. The Majority is comprised of faith communities, unions, Movement for Black Lives, Mijente and other migrant rights organizations, climate justice groups, indigenous networks, and a spectrum of progressive allies that are coordinating efforts in over 100 cities on May 1st to stand up for justice and equity.
Given our office closure and the work that will be happening on the ground on May 1st, we are extending the deadline for our Defending the Dream Fund from May 1st to May 3rd.
