2020-2021 Theme: Racial justice

In partnership with The Pollination Project, we were able to fund ten youth-led racial justice projects this summer through our BLM Mini Grants program.

 

Our grantees created murals, poetry contests, Black fiction book directories, and police brutality hotlines. They led campaigns to get cops out of schools, include more anti-racist texts in school curricula, and train young leaders on diversity, inclusion, cultural competency. 

In February, we hosted a Racial Justice Youth Panel, bringing together young leaders in the Black Lives Matter movement to share their powerful stories of activism. 

At Global Pitch 2021, we'll award a special prize to a team that effectively tackles the issue of racial justice through their project.

WORDS FROM OUR CHANGEMAKERS

"The Changemaker Project transferred me into a new person who is even more passionate about issues regarding the world. It made me a better team-player and I enjoyed the process a lot. The people who I was working with became my friends and I am looking forward to participating in this project every year until I become 24 years old!"
