Eligibility Criteria

The program will fund projects that align with the U.S Programs’ Equality team’s approach to racial justice. This approach:

  • rejects the 21st century postracial myth, which claims that by acknowledging race and ethnicity, they promote racism and xenophobia; it instead embraces the value of acknowledging the discriminatory impact that certain seemingly race-neutral policies can have on immigrants and communities of color;
  • believes that documenting this disparate impact and the ongoing role of discrimination provides a platform for others to question the legitimacy of structures that limit access to democracy, justice, education, and the economy;
  • recognizes the enduring power of language, image, media, the arts, and public opinion to combat or perpetuate discrimination against immigrants and people of color in the United States and across the globe; and
  • prioritizes the dismantling of structures that perpetuate discrimination over the targeting of individual actors who engage in discrimination.
