In September 2020, Funders for Justice hosted the three-day institute, “Eradicating Gender-Based Violence Outside of the Carceral System.” This institute, which featured some of the field’s most prominent experts, focused on elevating the dynamics and solutions for how we combat gender-based violence without reliance on policing in all its forms. The speakers also addressed, specifically, the role that funders and philanthropy have to play in supporting the organizations and leaders working tirelessly – and often without the necessary resources – to tackle these complex issues while supporting their communities.
