COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter uprising have swept the country, revealing with increased clarity all of the ways in which our government and society are failing Black, Indigenous, and people of color. Momentum to defund and abolish the police and build a better and more just world is mounting in our region, led by powerful collectives of Black and brown leaders. It’s time to step up our solidarity by giving with generosity now.
But how do you decide who and how much?
Should the urgency of the current moment change the way you give?
How do you give money without reinforcing oppressive dynamics?
This interactive, cross-class workshop will help you begin to think through these questions, and get you on the path to a giving plan that challenges you while aligning with your values. We’ll have plenty of time for discussion and offer resources that can help you move toward action, take time to reflect, learn from others, and come out ready to plan your giving.
Date and Time
Wednesday, August 5
6:00 to 8:00pm
