The Grassroots Action Fund 2022 is open to all Stop the Money Pipeline coalition partners.

The Fund is designed to support STMP coalition members in organizing strategic grassroots actions & participating in longer-term strategic campaigning that puts pressure on key targets.

In 2020, Stop the Money Pipeline regranted $30,000 in small grants to grassroots coalition. In 2021, we regranted $180,000. In 2022, $115,000 was regranted to grassroots coalition partners.

Here are the 15 grantees of our grassroots funds for 2022:

Climate Finance Action

We educate, identify, train, organize, and support stakeholders and community groups in multiple states to push public and corporate officials to use their considerable shareholder and investor power to pressure the largest drivers of the climate crisis to change their business practices to align with limiting global warming to 1.5ºC.

Climate First!, Inc.

Climate First! strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote clean energy in the Mid-Atlantic region, by organizing grassroots campaigns that encourage corporations and local governments to think about climate first.

Climate Safe Pensions for Wisconsin

Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) members are organizing a campaign to safeguard our pensions from fossil fuels, which threaten our financial security, as well as our water, our health, and our planet. More than 650,000 people participate in the WRS, including current and retired employees of state agencies, most local governments and school districts in Wisconsin.

Divest-Ed

Divest Ed disrupts the business-as-usual politics of the primarily class-privileged and white climate movement. Through political education, Divest Ed guides students to recognize the root of the climate crisis: capitalism and white supremacy. We strive to make sure the campus divestment movement is pro-Black, pro-Indigenous, class conscious, and anti-capitalist.

Divest Oregon

We are a statewide grassroots coalition of individuals and organizations representing unions with PERS members, racial and climate justice groups, youth leaders, and faith communities with the goal of calling the Oregon State Treasury to account for its funding of climate devastation rather than prudent investing in a sustainable future. 350PDX was the founding member of Divest Oregon in mid 2021 and the campaign formally launched in September.

New Mexico Climate Justice

New Mexico’s oil and gas production has grown 125% since 2010 and is poised for continued expansion. Unless this course is corrected, the volume of oil and gas extracted in New Mexico will increase more than 85% by 2030, and projected emissions from burning the oil and gas from new wells could amount to ten times Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s stated climate goal. New Mexico needs a clear plan to diversify the economy and wind down oil and gas extraction by 2030.

Oil and Gas Action Network

OGAN was founded in 2016, by social movement veterans who have deep experience organizing and campaigning. We focus on strengthening alliances across the climate and environmental justice movement and building grassroots power. Non-profit organizations should seek to facilitate and support grassroots movements that can scale up beyond staff-driven professional campaigns.

We’re building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people.

XR NYC

Extinction Rebellion NYC was born in December of 2018, inspired by Extinction Rebellion UK and the movement that began on October 31, 2018: 1500 people in Parliament Square in London announced a Declaration of Rebellion against the UK Government. Over the next few weeks, Extinction Rebellion UK blocked five major bridges across the Thames River, planted trees in the middle of Parliament Square, dug a hole there to bury a coffin representing the future, and super-glued themselves to the gates of Buckingham Palace as they read a letter to the Queen. In response to those acts of peaceful civil disobedience, new groups sprang up around the world from the Solomon Islands to Australia, from Spain to South Africa, from India to the US.

Each of our founding members has experience working with our people and other organizations that bring a unique set of values and perceptions to SNN. Exposure and witness to racism, appropriation, and exploitation of our way of life have compelled each of us to stand united against social and environmental injustice. Our teachings tell us that Creator tasked Native people to be the “keepers of the earth.” We believe we are environmentally conscious through our DNA and because our lifeways and culture parallel the health of Mother Earth. Through ancestral memories, prayer, and determination, we strive to help bring a positive change to our people and Mother Earth.
