Americans are beginning to feel the painful consequences of a historic level of market concentration, spurring public backlash, legal and economic innovation, and grassroots mobilization against monopolies. The Economic Security Project, a fiscally sponsored project of Hopewell Fund, is pursuing a two-year Anti-Monopoly Fund to build a sustained, cross-sector anti-monopoly effort to rein in the power of corporations over the democracy and economy of the United States. With other funders and leaders, the fund will build a robust ecosystem of anti-monopoly actors; catalyze legal and economic research, power-building campaigns, and powerful storytelling; and elevate both established organizations and new leadership alike. This renewal grant will serve the broad aims of the fund, including new work exploring the consequences of economic concentration on Black and Latinx communities.

for RAD innovation fund
This grant will support Resources for Abortion Delivery (RAD) to establish an “innovation fund” to surface replicable strategies for ensuring and expanding abortion access at a time when they are severely restricted for millions of women due to the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade. Ideally, this will lead to a reimagining of abortion care, one that reduces overmedicalization while ensuring the highest standards of safety, increases abortion-seekers’ autonomy and agency, compels the public health system to treat abortion as a fundamental health and social need, and greatly expands public and private coverage of abortion.
