Nexus is happy to be partnering with the Black Visions Collective on this rapid response fund. The goal of the Transformative Black Led Movement Fund (TBMF) is to transparently and efficiently resource Black-led and Black individuals in the Twin Cities. Funds will go to support those responding to the political and cultural opportunity to defund police and begin the transition process toward developing and implementing a shared vision of community led safety. Funds will also go to provide direct mutual and legal aid.
Through this interim fund, we will redistribute $3.1 million from funds raised by Black Visions and Reclaim the Block during the uprising proceeding the murder of George Floyd by MPD. Nexus Community Partners is partnering with Black Visions Collective to administer the fund and to facilitate the process for supporting an interim fund committee advisory. This fund serves as a rapid response strategy as we work to develop a community led Black Movement Fund. The fund application can be found here also, this is a link to the pdf version of the application for your reference, applications will still need to be submitted via online form, finally, the TBMF Frequently Asked Questions can be found here.
If you have questions about the application or the process please feel free to reach out to the TBLMF team at TBLMF@nexuscp.org.
