Law for Black Lives (L4BL)

Law for Black Lives (L4BL), a fiscally sponsored project of NEO Philanthropy, is a national member-based network that cultivates and trains a community of legal workers to defend, protect and advance Black organizing and seeks to transform and democratize the legal field.

Why We Invested

Democracy Fund’s Just and Inclusive Society project believes that with diverse organizations and communities working together for a common good, we create safe and secure communities, decrease polarization, develop a sense of shared national identity, and make space to defend constitutional norms under attack. Law for Black Lives has a litigation focus to challenge unconstitutional convictions and a capacity building initiative on surveillance and protection.
