What is the Four Freedoms Action Fund?
The Four Freedoms Action Fund (FFAF) is a project of NEO Philanthropy Action Fund (NEO-PAF) that builds and supports a robust local, state and national infrastructure of immigrants’ rights organizations and leaders. They are conducting a post 2018-midterm mapping and analysis to determine and understand what legislative opportunities there are at the state level to support immigrant communities.
Why do we think this project is a good idea?
We believe that diverse, bipartisan organizations and communities can work together for the common good. Bipartisan efforts are required in order to create safe and secure communities, develop a sense of shared national identity, and make space to defend constitutional norms under attack. The Four Freedoms Action Fund’s 2018-midterm mapping identifies potential legislative efforts, policy issues, and other state-level opportunities where bipartisan networks can collaborate more effectively.
How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting the Four Freedoms Action Fund?
In 2018, Democracy Fund Voice approved a grant of $100,000 to the NEO Philanthropy Action Fund (NEO-PAF) to conduct mapping of the 2018-midterm election and determine where there are legislative opportunities at the state level to support immigrant communities.
