Friends of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is a nonprofit fiscally sponsored project of NEO Philanthropy dedicated to preserving federal civil rights oversight and enforcement. The Education team has been focused up to now on shaping national policy related to deeper learning but has paid too little attention to the threats to deeper learning opportunities for vulnerable students. This grant sheds light on who these students are and the factors that inhibit their access to deeper learning opportunities.

for the Abortion Access Front project
Abortion Access Front (AAF) uses humor and real-time media to destigmatize abortion and expose antichoice forces working to dismantle access to reproductive rights in the United States. AAF breaks daily reproductive rights news and analysis; engages audiences through funny videos, live broadcasts, and social media; and is a trusted source for rapid response information. It also provides on-the-ground aid, morale boosting, and community building to abortion providers servicing low-income and people of color in states that are politically hostile to abortion.
