Boston-based organization taking applications for Social Change and Justice Grants

Boston-based Resist redistributes resources back to frontline communities at the forefront of change while amplifying their efforts to build a better world.

In support of this mission, the organization welcomes applications from grassroots organizations led by those most impacted by intersecting systems of oppression that are working to advance justice and liberation. Two types of grants will be awarded under this call:

General Support — Grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded to support groups that are building movements for justice and liberation and resisting systemic oppression through grassroots/cultural organizing, art-making, and resilience building.

Accessibility — Grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded for work that specifically allows a group's work to be more accessible. Examples of potential accessibility needs include interpretation services, wheelchair ramps, childcare, transportation for folks with mobility aids, etc.

To be eligible, applicants must have an organizational budget under $150,000 per year, be based in the United States, and be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) according to the Internal Revenue Code, or be a federally recognized American Indian tribal government or agency, or be sponsored by a previously listed entity.

See the Resist website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
