This August cycle was our largest so far in 2019! We moved $174,000 to 40 grassroots groups transforming their communities, tackling injustices, and tilting the scales of power.
As adrienne maree brown says (1), “What we pay attention to grows.” So while it’s easy to turn on your TV, witness what feels like the end of the world, and get angry or overwhelmed by helplessness, it is always fruitful to step back and take a look at the incredible feats ordinary people are doing in every corner of the United States.
Our grantees need you. The movement needs you. When you give to Resist in a recurring way, it allows us to redistribute funds in sustainable ways, better meeting the most pressing needs of our grassroots groups.
Below you can read about two of our Hell Yeah! Grantees, fully funded groups that exemplify all of the radical, intersectional, necessary work happening on the ground. These groups are relentlessly organizing on behalf of their communities by fighting with and for women of color, keeping residents in their neighborhoods, organizing and educating people about Black maternal health, and so much more!
