One of our Steering Committee members, Ginger Hintz, attended the Learning Tour of LA Ports at this year's EPIP National Conference. She shares her reflections here:
Philanthropy is about relationships. I think good philanthropy supports and builds long-term connections. These axioms were reinforced on a learning tour to the San Pedro Bay ports (the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach). Patricia Castellanos, Deputy Director and Director of Ports Project at LAANE, and Angelo Logan, Co-Executive Director of East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice, were our guides into a system that most people never see but are affected by every day.Continue reading

A few weeks ago, at our EPIP National Conference Reflection and Social event on May 22 at Cantina, a few members shared their main takeaways from their experience and participation at the EPIP National Conference. One member spoke about the Learning Tour she attended at the Port of Los Angeles, where they discussed the pollution created by the thousands of trucks transporting goods from the Port every day, the labor injustices experienced by the truck drivers, and the grassroots policy efforts happening in the community surrounding the Port to better their neighborhoods. Other members shared thoughts about the "real, honest, and approachable" attitudes of the presenters/panelists, the easy and exciting ways to meet and connect with new peers and continue those connections after the conference, and judgments about celebrity philanthropists were changed for the better.Continue reading
The EPIP National Conference was a few weeks ago, but we're still talking about it! We asked those of you who attended to send us your highlights, stories, learnings, and "aha" moments so we could share them with everyone. We'll be posting these throughout the next following weeks.
The first response we received was from Susanne Revutsky, who participated in the conference as a career coach and facilitated one of the sessions on Graduate School. She posted her thoughts and research about "Making the Case for Graduate School" on her website, Butterfly Careers.
Please add your comments if you attended this session or want to share your highlights and experiences on this topic. We'd love to hear from you!
