Reaffirming Our Commitment

As we recognize the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 and mourn for the lives lost, we also reflect on the baseless and misdirected harms and injustices experienced by Black, African, Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian (BAMEMSA) communities as a result of that day. We are reaffirming our commitment to these communities and asking philanthropic partners to join us in pledging to help raise $50 million over the next five years to support them.


Together we're creating a world with dignity for every individual.

We champion equal rights - and go beyond, to empower communities leading social movements for systemic change. For us, social justice is about creating opportunities for everyone to have a voice, accelerating grassroots leadership, and protecting and expanding fundamental rights and liberties. It is this force for change that will secure a future of equality, inclusiveness and democracy.

We're here to give you the tools, support and network to fuel your mission.
