The California Endowment, The California Wellness Foundation, Rosenberg Foundation, and Liberty Hill Foundation have launched the Rapid Response Racial Justice Fund. The purpose of this fund is to address the root causes leading to these tragic events and accelerate the momentum created by organizers on the ground at nonprofit community groups that are advancing racial justice and developing strategies to advance lasting systemic change. Funded work will include efforts that uplift the value of Black lives and address police accountability, criminalization, and violence on people of color. Examples of funded activities are leadership development, media and outreach campaigns, organizer training, organizing and mobilization efforts, forming or engaging coalitions, strategy development and technical assistance.
