U.S. Court blocks Fearless Fund’s grants to Black women for now

Written by on October 8, 2023

On September 30, the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on a 2-1 vote agreed with a request to temporarily block the Fearless Fund from considering applications for grants only from Black women-owned businesses. This was a victory for Edward Blum’s organization, the American Alliance for Equal Rights, in the effort to strike down all diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

In response, legal counsel for the Fearless Fund made clear they will seek “further appellate review,” which could mean the case could go all the way to the United States Supreme . . .
