Purpose

The Third Wave Fund, which started as the Third Wave Direct Action Corporation, was started by Rebecca Walker and other women concerned by the many events in the early 1990s threatening young women. These events included reproductive health, sexual harassment, rape, class, and economics.

The organization focuses on gender justice and activism to empower BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). They support grassroots movements and feature a leadership team of individuals younger than 35.

Results of Work

Third Wave Fund has had a tremendous impact on many countries. In 2020 alone, they were able to move more than $2 million dollars to support Black Lives Matter movements.

They also worked to increase their budget for grants and provided additional funds to SWGC (Sex Worker Giving Circle) grantees to overturn anti-sex worker laws.
