Resist Grant: Supporting People’s Movements for Justice and Liberation in the U.S.

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 8 September 2018

Resist Foundation is seeking applications for its grant program to support people’s movements for justice and liberation.

The Foundation redistributes resources back to frontline communities at the forefront of change while amplifying their stories of building a better world.

Funding Priorities

Resist funds organizations that:

  • Resist: Groups that organize, base build, engage in direct action and cultural organizing. Groups organize within communities for structural social and economic change. Groups develop tools for consciousness raising, including popular education and radical pedagogy development.
  • Re-imagine: Groups that actively build new systems that provide alternatives to the ones they are fighting now. These groups live into transformative justice by creating community-based alternatives to dehumanizing or inaccessible institutions and systems. This work might look like: alternatives to policing, urban gardens, cooperative childcare, etc.
  • Build Resilience: Groups that are creating through arts and cultural work and all forms of creative resilience building. Groups that are healing through sacred resistance, sustainability, ritual, bodywork, and other embodied healing for communities engaged in the work of liberation.
