Standing with the Fearless Fund

DEADLINE: n/a

GTY has signed onto a statement led by the Council on Foundations (CoF) regarding a lawsuit filed by the American Alliance for Equal Rights. The suit claims that the Atlanta-based Fearless Fund’s efforts to provide grants, tools, and mentorship to women of color is racially discriminatory. CoF noted the Fearless Fund’s program is protected by the First Amendment and “any argument that it is discrimination to help Black women gain opportunity in a field where they are underrepresented ignores the history of our nation.”
