ARC Toward Justice

The Arc Toward Justice Fund seeks to stop the criminalization of youth and young adults of color, end the school-to-prison pipeline, and build responses to harm that nurture wellness and well-being. As we just expanded our grantee cohort last November, we will not be reopening this fund for applications in 2017.

Beloved Community Fund

The Beloved Community Fund supports impactful public cultural and art events and projects geared toward communities of color in Oakland. Applications may be submitted online at any time, check here for our proposal due dates.
