NEW YORK, NY – EIN 131655255

LDF’s mission has always been transformative: to achieve racial justice, equality, and an inclusive society.

The new political landscape and a retrenchment in key areas of civil right poses unprecedented threats to the hard-won gains of the last half century. From new assaults on voting rights, to a renewed push to undermine equal access to quality education, to the reversal of criminal justice and policing reform, we face significant challenges in every area of our work.
