The Groundswell Fund Supports Initiatives to Advance and Defend Social and Reproductive Justice.
The Groundswell Fund, through its Rapid Response Fund, supports initiatives that quickly and strategically respond to unforeseen needs and opportunities in the struggle to advance and defend social and reproductive justice organizing by women of color and trans people of color. Rapid Response grants support strategic organizing responses to a public attack or community crisis, to an unforeseen legislative or policy development, or to a new opportunity that is immediate and has a specific timeframe. Short-term projects or actions that create opportunities to organize and build coalitions and/or educate public officials or the general public are also supported. The Fund encourages applications from organizations that center organizing, base-building, and advocacy as key strategies for building power and achieving social and reproductive justice and organizations that define themselves as women of color-led, trans people of color-led, and/or led by low-income women and/or transgender people.
