Which groups are funding Black Lives Matter? Who’s behind the so-called “Fight for $15” minimum wage campaign?

Using CRC’s new database on donors, nonprofits, and influencers driving politics at InfluenceWatch.org, CRC president Scott Walter, senior vice president Matthew Vadum, vice president and chief investigative officer Dr. Steven J.
