W.K. Kellogg Foundation: Lever for Change – Racial Equity 2030Deadline: January 28, 2021
Racial Equity 2030 will fund bold solutions to drive an equitable future for children, families, and communities across the globe. Hosted by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the challenge will invite, build, and scale ideas for transformative change in the social, economic, political, and institutional systems that uphold inequities. Racial equity is the primary challenge of today. The future of too many children is bound by the color of their skin, their families’ circumstances, or the limits of opportunity because of systemic inequities in their communities. The current global pandemic has laid bare inequities in health, wealth, and opportunity. The uprising for racial justice has produced a global outcry. But the systems that perpetuate inequity and injustice have been generations in the making. Racial Equity 2030 is a chance to re-imagine and build a future where equity is realized.
