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.
We are very excited to announce the 19 organizations selected in the first round of grants.
In response to this unique moment and opportunity, the Hill-Snowdon Foundation has developed the Making Black Lives Matter Initiative (MBLM), a three year grantmaking and strategic co-funding initiative that seeks to maximize this historic moment to begin building long term institutional and political power for Black social change and racial justice.
Exploring the Political Challenges and Opportunities in the Trump Era: The purpose of this webinar was to help provide a landscape analysis of domestic policy changes and the impact on vulnerable and targeted communities in the Trump era. While the policy agenda is becoming clearer, there is still a lot of anxiety and uncertainty and it is our hope that this session will try to provide some insights into some of the major policy changes on the horizon, the current and potential impact the Trump era is having in communities, where are prospects for folks fighting back effectively and building power, and what are the most necessary things to do in this environment.
In order of their presentations we have:
