The Fund for Our Economic Future is not blind to the injustices repeatedly levied on black and brown people. Our communities will not thrive until we fully value and embrace the humanity and contributions of people of color. We support the continued fight for racial equity and share in the responsibility of combating racism.
Our Fund’s work is grounded in the priorities called for in The Two Tomorrows. We support integrated job creation, job preparation and job access strategies, with deliberate attention to eliminating systemic race-based inequities and the barriers to opportunity they create and exacerbate.
