New Commonwealth Racial Equity and Social Justice Fund Joins as Symposium Collaborator!

Updated: Apr 16



We are excited to announce that The New Commonwealth Racial Equity and Social Justice Fund (NCF) is joining as a collaborator on our upcoming event, “Where Do We Go From Here? A Reproductive Justice Symposium”! 


Improving maternal health equity isn’t solely about mothers and birthing people — making lasting strides in this movement will require all of us. NCF will facilitate a panel on our collective responsibility to participate in conversations about maternal health. Focusing on how to engage audiences besides mothers in conversations about maternal health, NCF grantees will discuss their work and a series of conversation guides created in partnership with community organizations and Mass General Brigham to guide these critical dialogues.


About NCF

NCF was founded in 2020 by nineteen Black and Brown executives devoted to dismantling systemic racism in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Just this year, NCF announced their fourth cycle of investment in nonprofits serving Black and Latino communities, bringing the total to more than $13 million in grants made to more than 150 organizations over the nearly four years since their founding. NCF staff have also dedicated over 6,380 hours of direct technical assistance, over 2,000 hours of virtual and in-person site visits, and over 100 hours of culturally relevant capacity building to their partners.


Thank you NCF for your continued support and collaboration!
