Racial Justice

Liberty Hill fights for racial justice in all its campaigns and programs.


Transformative Justice at Liberty Hill

Liberty Hill was founded on the principle that we cannot wait for change to come to us. We support the evolution of a new movement for racial justice that seeks to dismantle systemic racism and traditional systems of harm in America. To strengthen that movement racial justice is embedded in the core principles of our work.

Investing in Progress

We bring together individual donors and foundation funders to invest in racial justice work through educational events, pooled funds and giving circles.

Building Alliances

We build alliances of youth of color and community organizations to address conditions they face in their own environments through youth-led advocacy.

Grassroots Training

We provide training and funding to grassroots leaders addressing racial justice in the criminal justice system, voting, wages, access to jobs and housing, and LGBTQ equality work.
