Racial Equity 2030 Challenge Awardee

The Center provides legal assistance to Indigenous peoples of the Americas to combat racism and oppression, to protect their lands and environment, to protect their cultures and ways of life, to achieve sustainable economic development and genuine self-government, and to realize their other human rights.

The Indian Law Resource Center seeks to overcome the grave problems that threaten Native peoples by advancing the rule of law, by establishing national and international legal standards that preserve their human rights and dignity, and by challenging the governments of the world to accord justice and equality before the law to all Indigenous peoples of the Americas.

The Indian Law Resource Center is a non-profit law and advocacy organization established and directed by American Indians. We provide legal assistance to Indian and Alaska Native nations who are working to protect their lands, resources, human rights, environment and cultural heritage. Our principal goal is the preservation and well-being of Indian and other Native nations and tribes.

Launched in October 2020 and sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Racial Equity 2030 was a $90 million challenge to help build and scale actionable ideas around the world for transformative change in the social, economic, political, and institutional systems that uphold racial inequities. 1400 proposals were submitted to the competition and were evaluated using four criteria: whether the proposals were game-changing, equitable, bold, and achievable. Ten Finalists were announced in September 2021. Five Awardees were announced in October 2022: ActionAid, Communities United, Indian Law Resource Center, Namati, and Partners in Development Foundation.
