    EPIP STL | July Lunch & Learn

    Note:

    This month's Lunch and Learn will be hosted at the Incarnate Word Foundation. We will resume our meetings at MHB in August.


    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. A light lunch is provided. Grab a friend and come prepared to meet new people and discuss ways to move the sector forward.

    This month we are joined by Jasmine Hall Ratliff, Program Officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation & former EPIP National Board Chair to discuss ways philanthropy can fund/is funding organizing work and the innovative strategies foundations have been using to support grass-roots groups. Jasmine will lead discussion highlighting the work of the NoVo Foundation's Radical Hope Fund which elevates social justice leadership and the creative response of community foundations to this administration's new policies. 

    To be prepared for our conversation, please read the articles linked above as well as this quick-read opinion piece on the ineffectiveness of 'big philanthropy' at systems change. 

    Hope to see you there!

    September 19th Screening: Girl Rising

    Nine girls. Nine stories of courage.

    Our film, Girl Rising, spotlights the unforgettable stories of girls living in the developing world, striving beyond circumstance and overcoming nearly insurmountable odds to achieve their dreams.

    Directed by Academy Award Nominee, Richard E. Robbins, written by acclaimed female writers, and voiced by acclaimed actresses including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway and more, Girl Rising proves that one girl with courage is a revolution.


    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.

    *NOTE: Girl Rising is our last scheduled screening for the year. If you are interested in hosting your own screening, please contact dc@epip.org.
