Philanthropy must push beyond its traditional discrete issue focus to adopt an intersectional approach to substantively address structural racism against the Black community.

What we know for sure
Systemic and progressive change can only be achieved with a robust and strong infrastructure for Black-led social change.

How we do it
Our network organizes a strategic joint learning table where funders in the network coordinate and align their grantmaking and co-funding for the greatest impact across a range of sectors, issues and strategies to shape their investments in the Black community.
