A Time to Celebrate and to Recommit

Across the country, a Black-led, multiracial feminist coalition of grassroots organizations mobilized votes to protect democracy, to uphold fairness and equity, and to create more avenues to turn this society toward justice, healing, and liberation. We are in awe of our grantee partners in the US Southeast and beyond who played leading roles in this historic shift, and those who are paving the way for a growing progressive majority in their states.

Reflecting on Our Role in the US Election Season

We have the privilege to fund fierce feminist leaders and organizations that are on the frontlines defending our multiracial democracy and building a just society. Across philanthropy, we must show up and move resources to the movements that are fighting for democracy and creating the world we want to see — in this moment and for the long term.

Statement of Solidarity

In this time of renewed and vibrant resistance, we stand in solidarity and unity with the visionary and expansive Black and Afro-Indigenous led movements whose long-standing work builds collective power to challenge deep-rooted, structural racism and advance justice and liberation.

What We've Learned, Where We're Going

The learning journey we have traveled this year produced a roadmap that will guide the foundation’s work to deepen, expand, and diversify our investments in movements that advance the rights of women, girls, and LGBTQI people. And we are happy to share some exciting news about our strategic directions over the next five years.

A Unique Vantage Point

In August, Maitri Morarji will join Foundation for a Just Society as the director of programs, a newly created position that will shape and strengthen our programmatic and philanthropic advocacy strategies. We spoke to Maitri about her approach to moving more and better resources to the women, girls, and LGBTQI people who catalyze change in their communities and countries.
