We are looking for grant proposals from organizations that want to advance racial justice and equity

Lumina Foundation’s senior vice president and chief policy officer wrote those words in a piece released almost a year ago, as Lumina replenished its Racial Justice and Equity Fund with $15 million. Despite and because of everything that has happened within the past year, we remain hopeful and even more deeply committed to racial justice and equity. Those terms are not mere buzzwords. They have specific, deep meaning that drives our actions. Racial equity is achieved when race or ethnicity no longer predict the outcomes in people’s lives. And justice results when policies, practices, and causes of inequity have been eliminated.

Community-based organizations help students gain valuable work skills quickly

People are struggling right now to find jobs, pay bills, and care for family. Located within those struggles is the need to upskill or reskill to be equipped for available jobs and better opportunities. Community-based organizations (CBOs) provide a critical means of support. They create new pathways to education and employment and help fill gaps for career guidance and navigation for institutions with limited capacity. They are helping meet adult learners’ needs, especially now when they are most urgent.
