We are deeply concerned for those who are targeted by White Supremacist, sexist, xenophobic, and homophobic actions and language. As an organization, we aspire to meet hatred with love and action, divisiveness with community-building and inclusion, and ignorance with education and support. As communities in Connecticut continue to organize to oppose racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, and other systems of oppression we want to offer support.
In response, the Memorial Fund is offering immediate support to communities in Connecticut responding to current and emerging threats, trauma, and/or harassment related to these manifestations of hate, bias, and oppression.
We invite you to apply for funding to give immediate, urgent support to these communities. This support could include gatherings, direct action, crisis response, or therapeutic support that addresses the physical, social, and emotional well-being and safety being threatened.
Use the Online Application to submit your request for support. It is our intent to move funds as quickly as possible to meet the needs of the community.
You are not alone; we are with you. We are committed to our mission of creating equity by working with people affected and inspiring all to end racism and poverty.
