    EPIP Chicago October Coffee Chat

    Please join EPIP Chicago for another Coffee Chat! This is an informal opportunity to connect with your peers from the comforts of our work-from-home set ups. We invite you to chat or listen in a space that's meant to bring our community of Chicago-based funders together. So make yourself some coffee or grab some tea, bake a croissant, whatever floats your boat...and join us in conversation! 


    • We'll start the conversation by with introductions
      • Name, workplace, location
      • Your favorite Halloween treat 
      • Something that is bringing you joy in the present moment or something you're working through in the present moment 
    • If there is interest we can share thoughts and reflections on last month's report released by the Council on Foundations: Shifting Practices, Sharing Power? Interviews with 250+ foundations revealed that "while many institutions shifted their philanthropic practices in response to the needs of 2020 by increasing giving and adopting flexible grantmaking, few are shifting power by changing internal processes or moving for broader systemic change."

    Unpacking Police Reform, Abolition, and Defunding

    Join the EPIP Bay Area Chapter for a timely discussion on an issue that has been thrust front and center into the mainstream consciousness as a result of the senseless murders that our society has borne witness to at the hands of police and racial violence.

    The injustices that George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Jacob Blake, and countless others have faced from the America’s criminal legal system have brought into greater focus the role of police in society and have called for a re-imagination of alternatives for community safety. From reform, to defunding, to abolishment – advocates have presented a variety of strategies to move away from the status quo that continues to perpetuate deep, racial inequities.

    During this article club, we will discuss and reflect on an op-ed piece by Mariame Kaba in the New York Times titled, “Yes, We Literally Mean Abolish the Police.” Mariame Kaba (@prisonculture) is the director of Project NIA, a grass-roots group that works to end youth incarceration, and an anti-criminalization organizer.

    Read the article, then join us for a conversation where we’ll unpack these concepts and explore the individual and collective roles that we can play in our personal lives and as philanthropy practitioners to bring about change in policing. This is meant to be a time to share our own perspectives and experiences on the issues, while thinking deeply about how we connect our roles in philanthropy to grassroots movements for change.

    Advanced RSVP is required. A Zoom link will be shared the day before the article club.
