How can we support structural and institutional change by shifting philanthropic energy towards racial equity?
EPIP Philly is bringing together a group of local changemakers who traveled to Seattle for the 2019 Unity Summit: Building & Bringing Power hosted by CHANGE Philanthropy to answer this very question. CHANGE Philanthropy (formerly known as Joint Affinity Groups) was founded in 1993 to unify identity-focused philanthropic affinity groups into an empowered coalition. Member groups include Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP), ABFE, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP), Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP), Funders for LGBTQ Issues, Native Americans in Philanthropy, Women's Funding Networks, National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP), Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity, and the Neighborhood Funders Group.
This year's Unity Summit explored strategies for utilizing power to advance philanthropic equity. Our panel of participants will share what they learned and heard at the summit, including topics such as movement building, capacity building, anti-black racism, and trust based philanthropy. We will then call upon the audience to think about how we can use these lessons to advance equity, right here in Philadelphia.
