Leveraging a Network for Equity amplifies the leadership of arts organizations of color and rural organizations to bolster a thriving and innovative field.
The effects of systemic racism and other oppressions on arts and philanthropy have left organizations of color under-resourced and undervalued for decades. Over the course of four years, the LANE program provides needed assets — including general operating support, recovery and change capital, technical assistance, and consulting — to ensure these organizations can thrive in ways that are consistent with their values.
“One of the tasks of any revolutionary movement is to turn thinkers into fighters and fighters into thinkers.”
In social justice and Black liberation movements, the month of August is a time for reflection, training, and study. In solidarity with Black August everywhere, LANE is inviting you into a moment of collective study to grow the political analysis in our field and connect our work with the larger movement for racial justice.
