Spitfire pro-bono fund kicks off its second year
Spitfire is committed to supporting movements that advance racial, economic and social justice across the country. We believe it’s critical to center the voices of people who are most impacted by systemic injustice, which is what led the firm to create a $100,000 pro bono fund to provide communications support for Black-led organizations engaging in racial equity work in 2020. Through Spitfire’s pro bono fund, we had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with Black-led organizations from across the country that focused on lifting up the arts to drive social change, achieving equity and justice in the Mountain West, and creating solutions to optimize maternal and infant health.
Now in its second year, Spitfire’s pro-bono fund will focus on Black-led organizations from our nation’s South that work to advance racial equity across a range of social justice issues, including health care, criminal justice reform, economic justice, arts and culture, etc. We believe it’s critical to center the voices of people who are most impacted and that systemic barriers to funding and capacity building often exist for Black-led organizations in these communities, especially in the South. Organizations across the South have worked tirelessly to mobilize and energize movement building to end police violence, advance equitable working and living conditions, to protect and build collective voting power and more.
We hope that investing in work in this region will help create a more equitable future and support Black leadership.
If you are part of a Black-led social justice organization in need of communications support and are based in the South, we encourage you to apply by Friday, August 6.
