The Center for New Community and Imagine 2050 are launching a Fall Fundraising Campaign: #NotARandomRacist.
The Campaign highlights our work to expose how seemingly unconnected individuals and organizations populate influential racist movements. As part of our campaign to raise $20,000, we will be revealing 20 lawmakers, lobbyists, and commentators who are not your random racists. We have collected the most troubling public statements from these individuals and will be releasing them throughout the campaign. Follow us on on twitter @imagine2050, like our Facebook page and check back here to learn about how today’s most active leaders are shaping racist policies and public discourse.
The Center for New Community’s research and advocacy programs facilitate and support racial justice and civil rights organizations at the local and national levels, as well as educating and informing the public through our website and articles posted daily here at Imagine2050.org.
Since its launch in 2008, Imagine 2050 has become a leading voice in exposing extremist hate in our country. To better address and expose organized racist activity that aggressively targets immigrant and minority communities, we’re asking you to join us by supporting CNC’s Fall Fundraising Campaign. Help us achieve a more inclusive democracy. Please donate today!
We Have More Work to Do
Many of you are aware that we are currently facing a humanitarian crisis in the United States. Thousands of children are fleeing extreme violence in Central America and seeking refuge with loved ones in the U.S. With this increase of migrant children at the border, the organized anti-immigrant movement has been fervently activating its base. The leaders of this movement are trying to convince us that we should view these children with suspicion and fear, not with compassion. Through their extremist rhetoric and demonstrations, these anti-immigrant and nativist groups have shown that they have no regard for the well-being of these children.
This is not new. This crisis has provided another platform for their cause and this time they are leveraging the lives of children to advance troubling policies and further malign all immigrants. Anti-immigrant organizations and fringe groups are well funded and well coordinated outfits. CNC is at the forefront of addressing this activity. For 19 years, CNC has been responding to anti-immigrant hate, Islamophobia, and other forms of organized racism.
Join us! Contribute to the fight.
With your support we can continue to grow and expand our programs, allowing us to continue this vital work.
- $25 helps us print a rapid response toolkit for at least five local activists.
- $50 pays for one day of publishing on Imagine 2050. This blog makes CNC’s timely, one-of-a-kind research and analysis free to the public.
- $100 enables CNC field organizers to conduct one webinar training for local and national allies, sharing valuable knowledge about how organized hate groups function and effective strategies for countering organized racism.
- $500 supports our research department for one day. On average this department responds to over 200 requests per year from journalists, local advocacy groups, and refugee and immigrant rights organizations. In addition, the research department conducts daily monitoring of politically extreme groups – groups that would otherwise go unmonitored.
- $1,000 helps CNC produce publications like the seminal Quinacrine Report and a report mapping the 21st Century Anti-Immigrant Movement. These reports are distributed to thousands of field activists, students and journalists – fostering in-depth knowledge of the far-Right.
