    EPIP STL | May Lunch & Learn

    In 2018, on every 4th Tuesday of the month, different members of our EPIP St. Louis community will lead monthly discussion on a particular topic or article. Bring a lunch, grab a friend and come prepared to meet new people and discuss ways to move the sector forward.

    This month's discussion will focus on racial equity & grantmaking, led by our very own Alyssa Curran - Program Officer at Missouri Foundation for Health and EPIP St. Louis Programming Co-Chair. Alyssa wrote an article for PEAK Grantmaking titled "Racially Equitable Grantmaking, No Longer a Choice" highlighting strategies for grantmaking with a racial equity lens. Give it a read and we'll discuss together both the possibilities of, and the points of tension when, implementing these kinds of strategies in our work.  

    Hope to see you there!

    EPIP DC| What Role Should Philanthropy Play in U.S. Democracy?

    In times of increasing political polarization, distrust of government and record low levels of public confidence in Congress, what role can (and should) philanthropy play in American democracy? How can it be used as a tool for civic engagement? Can philanthropy help advance liberal democracy and pluralistic civil society? What challenges might philanthropy face and/or create in this effort?

    Join us for an exciting and pertinent discussion with a panel of leading foundations and philanthropy experts highlighting the ways organized philanthropy is working in this space.

    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.
