Jean Hardisty Initiative 2019

The Jean Hardisty Initiative resources power-building strategies within the Movement for Black Lives that channel protest energy into the social capital and political power that changes unjust systems. The Power-Building Strategy of the Hardisty Initiative is grounded in our desire to be in deep, authentic relationship and solidarity with the Movement for Black Lives in their work to address and reform anti- Black systems and policies. Support for this work in this moment – as white nationalism is on the rise – is a powerful lever to create permanent change. It is also important context that movement-building work—and Black-led organizing work—has been dramatically underfunded by traditional philanthropy.
