December 2020
PDF's 2020 Annual Report reflects another year of our mission to build the capacity of community-based organizations through grants, training and other resources as partners in human rights and social justice movements. In a year like no other, Peace Development Fund made 250 grants totaling over 3 million dollars to 142 organizations through our five programs.
2020 brought historic mobilizations for racial justice. Our Annual Report highlights the grassroots organizers who laid the foundation for this movement moment and it shares stories of how our grant partners are building on this momentum. Tiheba Bain, Director of Women Against Mass Incarceration, said, “Our long-term vision is to end mass incarceration and to rebuild the lives of formerly incarcerated women and girls within our community.”

The report highlights the seventeen De Colores Rapid Response Fund grants that PDF made in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Decarcerate, INC, based in Little Rock, AR said, "This timely grant allowed us to implement tools for managing digital advocacy campaigns that allowed us to continue our organizing efforts safely and effectively."
As PDF gears up for another extraordinary year for community organizing, we know none of our work would be possible without the generous support of donors like you.
