Black girls and Black gender-expansive youth have been on the frontlines of fighting for racial and gender equity, but their stories and lives are often overlooked or erased. Investing in Black girls, young women, and Black gender-expansive youth is necessary, urgent, and just—for our collective freedom and to ensure that all Black lives are viewed as valuable today and tomorrow.
The fund aims to support work that advances the well-being of Black girls and their families, including work that centers and advances the power of Black girls and gender-expansive youth through organizing, asset mapping, capacity-building, legal advocacy, and narrative work that seeks to eradicate structural violence enacted against Black girls and gender-expansive youth. Grants will be strategically made to organizations led by Black women and girls, as well as non-Black led organizations that seek to build their capacity to better respond to the needs of Black girls. Grantmakers for Girls of Color is engaging Black girls and gender-expansive Black youth to inform and co-create our grantmaking process.
