A note about the demographics:
We were deeply moved and excited by the work that is being done by all of the organizations that the artEquity alum recommended for funding. All of these organizations have been listed and we encourage you to take time getting to know each one of them specifically. In our attempt to capture a clear picture of who these organizations were serving and their actions within and for those communities, we did not find a synthesis or tabulation that could clearly capture the depth of the work that is being done.
That written, we will name that there were similarities between these efforts--many of them serve Youth, Women, Indigenous, Immigrants, Latinx, and Black and Brown communities. They are also emergency relief efforts, education, advocacy programs, arts-based learning programs, violence prevention, community centers, theatre companies, artistic collectives, and movement building organizations.
A new component in Rounds 3 & 5 were individual grants. Over 35 nominations for individuals doing work at the intersection of art and social justice were awarded funding from the fund. Their demographic data is represented in the charts below but their names are not listed.
