It is undeniable that to solve our world's most pervasive and long-standing problems, funders must dismantle systemic racism.
Our country has been shaped by the forces of white supremacy, colonialism, and anti-Blackness. The social, political, and economic inequities that we experience today are byproducts of our nation's legacies of racism. To build a more equitable and inclusive future, philanthropy must address the root causes of systemic injustice by forwarding an agenda rooted in liberation.
