Direct action at the UN General Assembly

Organization: Climate Defiance

Beyond the Bill - Drivers Licenses For All

Organization: Alliance to Mobilize Our Resistance - AMOR

Grant Cycle: 2022, October

After years of organizing and advocacy by AMOR and our coalitions, Rhode Island passed a bill that legalizes drivers’ licenses for undocumented community members. This bill undermines one way that immigrants are often captured by law enforcement — on the road — and empowers them to move through daily life without fear of punishment. In preparation for the law’s rollout, we will coordinate outreach and public education, assist people seeking to obtain a license, and build our base by connecting community members with efforts to organize against state violence and for community empowerment.

Koa Futures Initiative: Stop the Leases Campaign

Organization: Hawaiʻi Peace and Justice

Grant Cycle: 2022, October

The State of Hawai’i leased more than 40,000 acres to the Army in 1965, for just $1 for 65 years, which are set to expire in 2029. As a result, the Army is trying to retain these lands beyond the lease. HPJ in coalition with Kanaka Maoli organizations, are building a grassroots campaign with the communities directly harmed by the military presence and who have been denied access to their ancestral lands to demand that the State refuse to renew the Army leases because in the midst of the climate crisis military pollution and violence is causing irreversible environmental harm to Hawaiʻi.

National Network of Organizing Hubs for Nuclear Weapons Abolition

Organization: Back from the Brink

Grant Cycle: 2022, October

Back from the Brink (BftB) is a grassroots coalition managing a national campaign to mobilize the public and build the political will needed to prevent nuclear war and fundamentally change nuclear weapons policy in the United States. By growing our national network of community-based organizing hubs in support of nuclear weapons abolition, BftB is building and mobiziling a powerful constituency around a call for the US to initiate negotiations with the other nuclear weapons states for a verifiable, enforceable time-bound agreement to eliminate their arsenals.

Reimagining National Security

Organization: Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC)

Grant Cycle: 2022, October

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. decried the “giant triplets” of racism, militarism, and materialism. Inspired by King, “Reimagining National Security” engages people, including youth, in making connections between climate catastrophe, racism and militarism. While many groups address militarism, or the climate crisis, or racism, very few make the connections between these critical issues. We believe that without addressing the impact of militarism, it is impossible to effectively address climate chaos.We will research local impacts, initiate discussions about true security, and mobilize actions.

SASS - Special Assets Safety & Security

Organization: Movement Training Network

Grant Cycle: 2022, October

The campaign promotes public knowledge of how weapons manufacturers profit from destruction, and offers a vision of a future without institutional investment in war.
