We interview Charlene Carruthers (BYP100) where we learn more about BYP100's work on nationalizing the invest/divest demand, Black queer feminist lens as an organizing framework, and the importance of leadership training and political education below.
Funders for Justice interviews Mary Hooks, Co-Director of Southerners on New Ground (SONG) and a leader of the National Bail Out. We asked Mary to tell us about a recent win on bail reform with the Atlanta city council, what visionary organizing looks like, and what funders can do in this moment.
Zachary Norris, the Executive Director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, provides insight on the current political climate, Ella Baker Center's work and connection national movements, and ways funders can support social change and transformation.
It is important for us to understand as funders, that this current backlash by white nationalist is a direct measure of our successes in local communities around the nation. Now more than ever, philanthropy must double down in its support to those explicitly addressing racism, white supremacy, and white nationalism.
