There’s no way around it. In order to build and sustain a movement we will need funding. We believe the best way to obtain it is on a grassroots level. We as a people and as an organization can not wait for Philanthropy, Foundations, Funders or Donors to give us the resources that are NECESSARY to begin our work towards collective Freedom. we believe the best funding is self funding. We want to see if our people will fund our own movement. Imagine if every time a person tweeted #BlackLivesMatter or #Ferguson or #TrustBlackWomen they put just $5 dollars in a pot to invest in what they were talking about. For decades people have been allowed to talk that talk but not invest anything into it. We wanted to see if we laid out a plan on how every dollar would be spent would the people fund it. If we showed how every dollar would impact communities around the world would they invest in it. And if we raised millions collectively and distributed to local Chapters and Members to begin to change the world how many of us would step up to that challenge. Below we lay out such a vision.
