Through our Community-led Social Change grants, we’re partnering with the Center for Law and Social Justice over five years as they dismantle and reimagine policies and systems that have prevented Black, Indigenous and other communities of color from thriving both prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re excited to share a look at some of their recent work, and the impact of our partnership.
