EmbraceRace (c/o Proteus Fund)

As US racial divisions and inequities grow sharper and more painful, the work of envisioning and creating systems of authentic racial inclusion and belonging in the United States remains work in progress. We believe that reversing the trend must begin in our homes, schools, and communities with our children’s hearts and minds.

At Embrace Race, we identify, organize – and, as needed, create – the tools, resources, discussion spaces, and networks we need to meet 4 goals:

The Leverett Historical Society

The Leverett Historical Society (LHS) has holdings in 1810  Moore's Corner School/Meeting House and in the 1916 Leverett Family Museum. Both locations have a collection of donated local artifacts,  photographs, books and papers, and genealogy materials depicting the agricultural, economic and industrial endeavors of the Town  as well as its social history, has accumulated over the years and is now available for viewing by the public.

Downtown Amherst Foundation - Relief and Resiliency Microgrant Program

The Downtown Amherst Foundation’s Relief and Resiliency Small Business Microgrant program intends to offer microgrants to small, local businesses and individual contractors to meet their short-term financial needs. The grant can cover employee wages and benefits (including fringe benefits associated with employment, such as health insurance), accounts payable, fixed costs, inventory, rent, and utilities. This application is ONLY for Amherst, Massachusetts small businesses, independent contractors, and self-employed individuals who operate a brick and mortar business.
