Be part of the solution. Join MCF Summer School 2024




Register now and help us build a people- and planet-centered future!
While some worry about the threat of fascism in the United States, many are already living it.

The stakes could not be higher, and those of us who care about freedom—especially funders—need to understand how we got here and the role we can play in helping fuel multiracial coalitions that can combat the forces of fascism.


As my team and I continue to hold Summer School events, I am more convinced than ever that political education has the power to spark the solidarity essential for creating a future focused on the well-being of people and the planet.
