TRANSFORMATIVE BLACK LED-MOVEMENT FUND ANNOUNCEMENT
We have had an incredible response to the Transformative Black Led Mutual Aid Fund (TBLMF). Since August 10th, requests for Mutual Aid alone have totaled over 1.5 million dollars from 700 applications (from both organizations and individuals).
Because of this response we will be putting the mutual aid fund on hold to be able to adequately assess and more promptly respond to these needs. We will send out another communication once it has re-opened. We understand that this response indicates the great amount of need in our Black communities and are working hard to be able to distribute these funds as quickly and thoughtfully as possible during these difficult days. We appreciate your patience, reminders, and all of the following up.
We will honor and review requests received through 10/2.
Applications for Organizing for a New Future, Transformative and Healing Justice, and Economic and Cultural Justice will re-open on October 12th.
Please feel free to reach out to the TBLMF team with any questions or concerns that you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org. We try our best to respond to all emails within one week.
