WDN Supports M4BL’s Electoral Justice Project
WDN’s Hardisty Fund is proud to support the The Electoral Justice Project (EJP), a project of Movement for Black Lives.Thanks to contributions from WDN members, the Hardisty Fund steering committee awarded $60,000 to help get this exciting project off the ground. Check out the vision and goals of the project below:
EJP seeks to continue a long legacy of social movements fighting for the advancement of the rights of Black folks through electoral strategy. We recognize that voting alone will not change the conditions plaguing Black communities, but we believe that Black people deserve a loving and strategic political home to seek transformational political change.
The Movement for Black Lives is a coalition of Black-led organizations, networks and leaders fighting for the safety, prosperity, and self-determination.
The Electoral Justice Project will work in partnership with Movement for Black Lives organizations to build the largest Black political mobilization of Black people in the US that builds civic power and strengthens an affirming political vision.
