Detroit Black Community Food Security Networkhttp://www.detroitblackfoodsecurity.orgDetroit MIDBCFSN was formed to address food insecurity in Detroit’s Black community and organize community members to play an active leadership role in the local food security movement. Many of the key players in the local urban agriculture movement were young whites, who while well-intentioned, exerted a degree of control inordinate to their numbers in Detroit’s population. It is our view that the most effective movements grow organically from the people whom they are designed to serve. Representatives of Detroit’s majority African-American population must be leading efforts to foster food justice and food security in Detroit. localMalik Yakinifirst,second,third,fourth_tag,fifth501c3 nonprofitCheck by mail, Credit card donation made online

Federation of Child Care Centers of Alabama www.focalfocal.orgMontgomery ALFOCAL is a statewide membership organization, representing 300 community-based licensed child care providers, parents, community leaders, and other child advocates throughout Alabama. Our membership is 75% African-American and 95% female. Our constituents are majority low-wealth and rural. FOCAL was born out of the Civil Rights Movement, in a region characterized by racial strife and internalized messages of inferiority and powerlessness. Examining how these unconscious messages are being lived out in parenting and communities influenced FOCAL’s creation of a unique approach to organizing. FOCAL’s organizing model is rooted in a democratic belief in the ability of people and communities to act on their own behalf with the best that is within them: to envision better futures, identify external and internal barriers to success, develop plans, and work collectively as their own best advocates to achieve their goals.statewideSophia Bracy HarrisFOCAL
