Part conversation about redistributive justice and part fundraiser for Groundswell Community Justice Trust Fund, this is an invitation to learn about the power of grassroots movements, and a call to action to support them. A cross-class space, this conversation is for you if:
-You’re already supporting grassroots organizing efforts, or you’d like to start;
-You want to support social change that’s led by communities most affected by systems of oppression;
-You want to start or continue to share your own resources (money, networks, material needs, etc.) with social justice organizers;
-You are curious (and maybe a bit intimidated or confused!) by any of the above.

Formed in 2011, Groundswell Community Justice Trust Fund began as a way to talk about funding social movements, while building a capital base to benefit social justice organizing over the long term. At a time when capitalism is in crisis, and inequality and exploitation flourish, they are trying to take a practical approach to building a better future. Groundswell is trying to breathe some life into a conversation about money, and help grow progressive social movements that are independent and resourceful.
