Black Lives Matter Aims to Raise $100 Million to Back Agenda

On the heels of issuing a six-point policy platform to address systemic racial inequity and injustice, the Black Lives Matter movement is ramping up organizational and fundraising work in support of the plan, Fortune writes.

The Black-Led Movement Fund, a donor pool to which the Ford Foundation has already pledged investment, seeks to bring in $100 million in new resources and build up organizational and leadership capacity for the “rapidly growing movement,” according to Borealis Philanthropy, a group that links donors and grantees and is heading up the effort.
