“We’re fighting because people literally are in harm’s way…. It’s getting really clear about what all of our roles [are] in bringing people who are in harm’s way to the center and saying every single strategy that we can employ to ensure that your life is protected, we’re going to employ those strategies.”

— Jessica Byrd, The Electoral Justice Project

Across the country, women of color—with Black women in the lead—are at the vanguard of progressive change, fighting for liberation, not just for themselves, but for all people. Groundswell Action Fund (GAF) supports some of the nation’s most effective and visionary leaders as they build the power of progressive, justice-based organizations to transform culture and shape political outcomes, including elections and public policy. We are committed to supporting work in communities historically ignored by funders and believe that those most excluded from our democracy should be at the center of transforming it. That’s why, of the 24 organizations included on this docket, 23 are women of color-led or co-led, ten are based in the South, and eight are led by Black women.
