Racial equity can be defined as "the condition that would be achieved if one's race identity no longer influenced how one fares." (from "Awake to Woke to Work: Building a Race Equity Culture" by Equity in the Center). This collection focuses on racial equity and also includes works that explore the larger diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) framework. Our aim is to raise awareness about funding for racial equity efforts as well as activities in the social sector meant to realize racial equity. The collection is part of Candid's Funding for racial equity special issue website.

March 20, 2023

The Building Movement Project (BMP) supports and pushes the nonprofit sector by developing research, creating tools and training materials, and facilitating networks for social change. BMP's movement building work provides tools, trainings, and narratives to foster cross-racial solidarity among movement leaders and social change organizations.This report is part of BMP's Movement Infrastructure Series which offers ideas, approaches, and practices to strengthen individual organizations and broader social movement ecosystems. Balancing Act: Asian American Organizations Respond to Community Crises and Build Collective Power is a collaboration between BMP and Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Asian Law Caucus (ALC). ALC brings together legal services, community empowerment, and policy advocacy to fight for immigrant justice, economic security, and a stronger democracy, with a specific focus on serving low-income, immigrant, and underserved Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the Bay Area. ALC coordinates the Asian American Leaders Table (AALT), a network of local and national organizations that came together in March 2020 to respond to the increase in bigotry and violence targeting Asian American communities during the pandemic through information sharing, narrative change, and advocacy. Since 2020, BMP has supported the AALT through strategic facilitation, guidance for frontline response, co-learning sessions, and solidarity workshops.
