Last week MacArthur Foundation staff responded to racist events and the systems that uphold them. Our President John Palfrey said that:

“White supremacy and the practice of racial injustice remain parts of everyday life in America…As a philanthropy devoted to creating a more just world, we wake up every day at MacArthur with the opportunity and obligation to address the structural and systemic racism that these actions reflect.”

And we invite you to check out what our grantees in a wide range of program areas said on social media over the past few days. Now and always, we commend all of our grantees’ efforts to help build a more just, verdant, and peaceful world:

We support creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world. ⚖🌿☮🌎
