This month, we're lifting up the voices of those within philanthropy who are boldly telling their own stories...
- Native Americans in Philanthropy's (NAP) recently-released Truth & Healing Movement Toolkit is a treasure trove of resources, including books, videos, and social media accounts, that tell the story of Indigenous history and share present-day stories of resilience and ingenuity from Native peoples.
- For those in the Washington, DC area, the Guide to Indigenous DC app is a self-guided walking tour of the DC area that emphasizes tribal history and Indigenous contributions to the city.
- The Black Women's Guide to Philanthropy celebrates the contributions of Black women to our sector, features Black women philanthropists to follow, and shares how to give back in time, talent, testimony, and treasure.
- A Different Asian American Timeline traces Asian American history while placing it in a broader context of race, capitalism, and social movements.
- The Women's Philanthropy Institute highlights the contribution of donors to women's funds and foundations and finds that they see themselves as philanthropic leaders and are motivated by believing their gift can make a difference.
..and celebrating those who are helping to ensure that underrepresented stories are shared both inside and outside of the sector.
- Media Impact Funders ED Vincent Stehle argues for the importance of personal storytelling in the work foundations do and the stories we tell in a new piece in the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
- CompassPoint takes a stand against the myth of white supremacy in the wake of recent violence in Gilroy, Dayton, and El Paso and shares ways to amplify and support relief efforts.
