Image description Text: Mismatched: Philanthropy’s Response to the Call for Racial Justice
The number of racial justice funders in the US has grown 5x over the past decade. But the total amount of racial equity funding is still painfully small, according to a new report by @RJGrantmakers. Philanthropy has to do better.
Black feminists have always been at the forefront of social justice movements. @BlackFemFund shows the power of working across the diaspora. Their cofounders work to transform philanthropy to support Black-led movements for justice. @FordFoundation

We celebrate feminist movements in Mexico who are turning the tide on abortion access, including groups like @consorciooaxaca. The #MareaVerde is crossing Latin America to ensure that women & people with marginalized genders are the bosses of their own bodies. #GreenWave
Now that Mexican courts can no longer prosecute abortion cases, Ana María Hernández Cárdenas of @consorciooaxaca points out that low-income women will no longer be targeted for prosecution & jail for accessing abortion. #EconomicJusticeIsGenderJustice…
Too many funders see Black & Brown communities as the cause of climate injustice, rather than the most affected. Philanthropy underfunds movements led by Black & Indigenous people, worsening climate crises. Instead, funders must support grassroots who make their own solutions.…
Congratulations to the Environmental Justice Resourcing Collective at @KatalyFdn! Their $31.75M worth of grants will support building power in communities of color at the frontlines of climate injustice. We can't wait to see their partners' upcoming work.…

The increased reach of militarism in the past 20 years means Black & Brown people face police or military threats from the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan to Jilib, Somalia, & Minneapolis, USA. Ending occupation & enacting abolition = reproductive justice.…
.@RepBarbaraLee's leadership—she was the lone vote against a resolution for the US to use military force in Afghanistan—is a model for us all. And congratulations to Rep. Lee for her fifth term as Congressional Representative to the UN.…

Chickasaw, Chippewa, Choctaw, Iroquois, Lumbee, Pueblo, & Sioux women are typically paid less than 60% of white men for the same work. Ending underpayment & closing the wage gap is essential for Indigenous women & families. #NativeWomensEqualPay…

Please follow local reproductive justice leaders who are already doing the work in Texas: @lilithfund @WholeWomans @avowtexas @PPGreaterTX @RAICESTEXAS And if you are in need of abortion care, resources are available at &
The new Texas abortion law—and the SCOTUS failure to block it—will cause generations of harm. The US has exported this kind of ideology for years. It's unacceptable here & unacceptable globally.
The ability to travel about in public freely is a gender justice & disability justice issue. @NaomiMwaura8 of @FloneInitiative lays out an action plan to change that: - make routes transparent - protect passengers from harassment - hire women. @TEDTalks…
