    In this thought-provoking documentary, scholars, activists and politicians analyze the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom.


    Join EPIP DC throughout the year as we screen three groundbreaking documentaries – Before the Flood, 13th and Girl Rising. This three-part series explores themes that challenge systems of power, including environmental justice, discrimination and criminal justice reform, and girls’ education and empowerment. We hope these screenings will encourage us to lean into the uncomfortable and provide us with an opportunity to discuss issues we all care about.

    • Each film will start promptly at 6:10 pm and will be followed by open dialogue.
    • Light refreshments will be provided.

    Bring a friend or colleague to join for an evening of film and conversation.

    EPIP CO Coffee Chat: Power in Philanthropy

    It’s that time again – you’re invited to EPIP CO’s June Coffee Chat! RSVP as space is limited. Meet up at Fluid Coffee,501 E 19th Ave, Denver, CO 80203 on June 26th from 8:30am to 10:00am to chat about power. Recently, the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy released their Power Moves Toolkit, with the goal of helping philanthropy “discover how well they’re building, sharing and wielding power for maximum impact on issues and communities you care about.” This is just one of many examples of foundations, affinity organizations, watchdogs, and others creating resources to help the sector move forward in these areas. How do you feel your organization is doing when it comes to power? What would you change if you could? What are some examples of great work in this area? What questions do you have?

    Join us for a chat about power in philanthropy, whether you’ve never thought about it before or it’s your greatest passion! Arrive between 8:30am-9:00am, grab a snack and/or a drink, and get to know some new folks (or catch up with old friends). We’ll start our discussion at 9:00am, and finish at 10:00am. Street parking is available.

    EPIP DC | Advocating for Equity in the Workplace

    Member Registration

    As the philanthropic sector grapples with our role in promoting equity, it is critical that staff, particularly emerging leaders, have the resources and support needed to advocate internally for more equitable, socially justice policies and practices. This interactive discussion, modeled on EPIP’s Emerging Leader Salons and a popular session at last year’s CHANGE Philanthropy UNITY Summit, will highlight lessons learned from a panel of experts and practitioners who have worked successfully – or not so successfully – to advance equity within their own institutions. The program will tap into the wisdom in the room and provide space for group discussion.

    Featuring:

    • Jeanné Isler, Vice President and Chief Engagement Officer, National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) (Moderator)
    • Danielle Reyes, Executive Director, Crimsonbridge Foundation
    • Timothy McCue, Director of Grant Programs, Potomac Health Foundation
