The Bonner County Human Rights Task Force is now seeking proposals from community non-profits, educational and governmental agencies for the development and implementation of projects specific to issues of human rights.
Do you have ideas about promoting awareness and understanding of human rights that will help foster a more inclusive and welcoming community? Do you wish for more equity and less discrimination based on the labels we give each other and the division that they create?
Each year, the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force (BCHRTF) seeks to fund projects and programs that support our stated mission: to affirm the American principles and ideas of the inviolable dignity and worth of each human being and recognize that everyone is equal under state and federal laws and constitutions.
Examples of projects which would be considered for the grant include ones focused on...
Eliminating barriers to full community participation to anyone because of socio-demographic characteristics such as race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or economic status
Providing exposure to cultural diversity to reduce fear that could lead to unwarranted stereotyping or exclusion
Addressing causes of bigotry or harassment resulting from misinformation, falsehoods or lack of exposure to cultural diversity
Creating safe, inclusive, supportive and respectful environments for youth and other groups needing special support.
Grants will be awarded up to $8000 — Deadline: April 30, 2020
