What is the Equally American Campaign?
Equally American Campaign is a nonpartisan civil rights organization that fights to advance equality and civil rights for the 3.5 million citizens living in U.S. territories, 98% of whom are people of color.
Why do we think this organization is important?
Equally American Campaign is leading efforts to address America’s colonies problem by advocating for systemic change both inside and outside the courtroom. Working across usual ideological and political lines, Equally American Campaign has developed a sophisticated legal, policy, and communications strategy that applies the lessons of past civil rights movements to challenge the racist colonial framework established by the Insular Cases and bring an end to the second-class treatment of millions of citizens who live in U.S. territories.
How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting Equally American Campaign?
In 2022, Democracy Fund Voice approved a two-year grant of $300,000 to the Equally American Campaign.
