Justice Catalyst is joining the effort to take on corporate influence and rebuild civic power. The Economic Security project today announced the creation and launch of its Anti-Monopoly Fund (AMF). Starting with an initial $10 million commitment from a combination of institutional funders, family foundations and individual donors, AMF will fill a need of directing resources to organize and expand the efforts of groups already dedicated to creating fair markets and enacting smart anti-monopoly enforcement and policy.
AMF will serve as convener and funder of current anti-monopoly efforts, as well as sourcing out new work on the topic. AMF is slated to operate until March 2021.
Early partners include the Ford Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, Omidyar Network, Hewlett Foundation, Nathan Cummings Foundation, Knight Foundation, Way to Win, and Justice Catalyst.
