The powerful potential of intermediaries to align funding to the racial justice movement

Aria Florant Liberation Ventures

In this session, we will explore the pivotal role intermediaries play in aligning funding to advance the racial justice movement. Through the lens of catalytic philanthropy, we will delve into how intermediary structures can effectively bridge funders across diverse ideological preferences, risk tolerances, and experiences with racial justice. In particular, we’ll highlight the powerful role that centering movement leaders in developing strategy can play in driving transformational impact. Drawing from the experiences of Liberation Ventures, the California Black Freedom Fund, and Bridgespan, we will dissect successful strategies, innovative models, and practical insights that leverage intermediaries to drive systemic change in racial equity.
