We embrace this new chapter as an opportunity to strengthen the efforts of grassroots movements on local, state and national levels with investments in bold solutions to these most pressing challenges. When we look back on this time, may we always remember that it was the efforts of women— and particularly Black and brown women, immigrant women— whose unwavering commitment to justice and equality made this possible.
Our work begins at The Foundation with our grantee partners and the communities of women and families they support. We remain unflinching in our commitment to invest in the movements they are leading for change. Our grantee partners also have a unique opportunity now to have the changes they’ve been fighting for be seen through to fruition. From turning the tide towards protections for trans and gender nonconforming communities, to immigration justice, racial equity and more, we join them in the fight to ensure that the Biden administration enacts the changes we urgently need.
Of the many lessons we’ve learned over the last year, may we remember that we are interconnected. And when we center the needs of those who have been harmed by the last administration and a culture of racism and patriarchy, we create a path for sustainable, meaningful change. With determination and a spirit of radical generosity, we will see this through— together.
