The Mass Liberation Fund (MLF) is fiscally sponsored by Tides Foundation. MLF was launched in 2019 to bolster the growing movement to end mass incarceration and abolish the criminal legal system as we know it.

This grant supports the work of MLF, including conducting capacity building efforts among directly-impacted organizers and grassroots non-profit organization leaders to combat mass incarceration and the criminalization of communities of color in several states across the country. MLF’s programs of support include skills training, coaching, political education, organizing, and a fellowship program for new and emerging directly-impacted organizers.
