We’ve Built A Foundation On Investing in Positive Outcomes

Emily Bell testifies before Congress

The House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology held a recent hearing on “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media.”

The Tow Foundation stands in solidarity with the Black community and its allies to dismantle the systems that have contributed to the racial injustice and deep, violent oppression in our country. We encourage our peers in philanthropy to do the same, using both their words and actions. Staying silent is not an option. The Tow Foundation is committed to highlighting the work of our grantee partners in support of a more safe, just and equitable society for all. Please tune in to their social media channels to learn more.
