Last year, Grassroots International distributed $5.9 million to our movement partners and allies for transformative work in 20 countries and at the regional and global levels.
Now is the time to scale up movement-support infrastructure to match the enormity of the challenges at hand.
In the face of a continuing pandemic and violent repression by right-wing regimes, Grassroots International continued its support of frontline movements with $5.9M in grants. As during the previous year, Grassroots funded both emergency response and long-term efforts in movement building and environmental justice.
Grassroots’ ability to sustain and nurture global movements through adversity depends on the shared vision and commitment of our supporters. Their unstinting solidarity allows Grassroots to stay focused on the work of movements. It also enables a high proportion of spending on grants, education, and program activities. Grassroots will continue building and strengthening its programs so it can be a growing source of support to movements in the years to come.
As the world feels on the brink of a precipice, social movements are both sustaining life through their practices and building power to radically transform the very systems threatening life. Now is the time to scale up movement-support infrastructure to match the enormity of the challenges at hand and the tremendous capacity for societal transformation that social movements have shown themselves to have.
