Overview
Fossil energy development has a greater impact on the ecological integrity of public lands than does any other activity. Two years ago, the Department of Interior issued new guidance to public land managers to ensure important fish and wildlife habitat would not be lost to energy development. Ironically, one of the biggest impediments to implementing this new guidance is the public land managers themselves, who are often entrenched in a fossil energy development viewpoint. This grant would support strategic communications and grassroots outreach to educate these federal bureaucrats about the justification and need for these new habitat protections.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Sum of Us Project  
The Hub Education and Engagement Fund is a project of the New Venture Fund, a nonprofit that hosts and incubates a wide range of conservation, education, global health, and other charitable projects. The Hub will undertake The Sum of Us Project, which aims to advance a race-conscious economic narrative to replace the zero-sum paradigm that undergirds so many neoliberal policy debates. The project will amplify the core concepts from the 2021 book by Heather McGhee, “The Sum of Us,” marshalling evidence of racism’s role in the rise of neoliberalism and inequality, while promoting solutions for broad-based prosperity. The grant supports multimedia content creation, strategic communications, virtual convenings, research, advising and program support and administration. Broader understanding of the intersections of race and class will improve policy design and help to provide a new common sense within the field of economic justice experts and advocates.
for the Tech Talent Project  
The Tech Talent Project is a nonpartisan fiscally sponsored project of the New Venture Fund. Its mission is to increase the ability of the U.S. government to recruit and retain modern technical leaders in order to achieve critical economic, societal, and human outcomes. Tech Talent operates as a nonprofit recruiting and advisory group that collaborates closely with government agencies to identify and document critical needs; advises on best practices; and recruits, vets, and matches a diverse, highly qualified pool of technical leaders that have relevant technical skills and a desire to serve in government.
