The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation donated $200,000 during its 2021 fiscal year to a Chicago-based nonprofit whose executive director has repeatedly called cops “pigs.”
Equity and Transformation (EAT), established in 2018, is a Chicago-based social justice nonprofit founded “by and for post-incarcerated people,” according to its website. Recently released tax forms for the BLM Global Network Foundation reveal that they gave a “cash grant” of $200,000 to EAT during the 2021 fiscal year.

The group, which was founded by defund the police activist and community organizer Richard Wallace, who remains the group’s executive director, has organized protests against police and advocates for reparations. However, it primarily focuses on achieving “social and economic equity for Black Workers engaged in the informal economy,” or African Americans who work jobs “not regulated or protected by the state,” which appears to include criminal activity.
Wallace, who has repeatedly called police “pigs” and said they need to “defund these b—ards,” postedsmiling emojis on his Facebook in response to 2020 article saying, “54 percent of Americans think burning down Minneapolis police precinct was justified after George Floyd’s death.” In 2015, Wallace took to Twitterto say, “F— the police.”
Experts told Fox News Digital last month that a large increase of Black Americans being murdered was a result of the defund the police movement, which resulted in Black Americans being disproportionately affected by the skyrocketing murders of 2020. According to FBI data, the number of deaths among Black Americans spiked by more than 32% in 2020 compared to 2019.
