Advocating for Racial Justice
At Tearfund, we work alongside the local church to combat poverty and injustice in all its forms. Our primary programmatic activities are globally focused, but we recognize that the powers and principalities that perpetuate global injustice are the same that can also wreak havoc in our own nation. With that tough truth, we are committed to looking to and empowering leaders of color within the United States to guide us in taking further action for justice.
We acknowledge the need to support grassroots leaders who implement tangible initiatives to challenge anti-Black racism and empower communities of color. In 2021, we launched the Racial Justice Grant to support community-based initiatives and activities that promote impactful and sustainable change related to social justice among local communities in the United States.
