The 2018 Fund for Change Grants

Liberty Hill is pleased to announce that our 2018 Fund for Change grants will invest $975,800 in 39 grassroots organizations throughout Los Angeles County. Thanks to the generosity of our donor-activists and foundation partners, we have been able to increase our Fund for Change grantmaking by $256,800 since 2016. The Fund for Change is Liberty Hill's primary competitive grantmaking program, with the goal of fueling community organizing that builds power to change policy and improve opportunities for all Angelenos.

Get to Know Liberty Hill's 2018 Leaders to Watch

Remember what it was like to be a kid? What would you have done, at 12 years old, if you couldn’t breathe because of the oil drilling site next door? What if, at 16 you were sent to jail for being late to school? What would you do today if you lost your home because the landlord increased your rent beyond your means?

Would you be paralyzed by fear or would you fight back?

Why Justice Begins at Home

These days the news can be overwhelming. Stories of violence, injustice and oppression fill our feeds almost daily. Meanwhile, hateful ideas are being given an increasingly visible platform at the national level. These problems can be daunting, and sometimes it’s hard to even know where to start. But the worst thing we can do in a time of so much need is become overwhelmed.

Environmental News Roundup

In the fight to end neighborhood oil drilling across Los Angeles’ communities, every small victory is worth celebrating, and every campaign move is an opportunity to highlight the public health challenges that communities face. Liberty Hill’s network of donor-activists, on-the-ground activists and coalition leaders make our environmental justice work possible, so we wanted to keep you updated on the latest campaign news.
