Resist funds groups that:
-Resist: Groups that organize, base build, engage in direct action, and cultural organizing. Groups organize within communities for structural social and economic change. Groups develop tools for consciousness-raising, including popular education and radical pedagogy development.
-Re-imagine: Groups that actively build new systems that provide alternatives to the ones we’re fighting now. These groups live into transformative justice by creating community-based alternatives to dehumanizing or inaccessible institutions and systems. This work might look like: alternatives to policing, urban gardens, cooperative childcare, etc..
-Build Resilience: Groups that are creating through arts and cultural work and all forms of creative resilience building. Groups that are healing through sacred resistance, sustainability, ritual, bodywork, and other embodied healing for communities engaged in the work of liberation.
Groups must have a budget of less than $150,000/year; be based in the U.S.; be lead by those most impacted by intersecting systems of oppression; be a 501(c)3, federally recognized American Indian tribal government or agency, or be sponsors by one.
