Rapid Repair Fund
As truth itself is so often called into question, we need to both tell the truth about racism, white supremacy, and state-sanctioned violence and to support those who boldly stand up to do the same. The Truth Telling Project and fellow donors, to this end, have established an initiative that we call the Rapid Repair Activist Fund. The Fund draws upon a grassroots approach to reparations in which organizers, scholars, and writers work to raise individual donations and grant monies and contribute it to community activists’ programs and initiatives. Given the lack of economic support for BIPOC social justice activists and the tremendous need to mobilize communities around basic rights and human dignity, this philanthropic fund has set out to alleviate economic hardships by offering a running granting cycle. The impetus behind the Rapid Repair Activist Fund is to provide enough resources for on-the-ground activists to receive a one-time grant up to $10,000.
