What We've Been Reading: May 2020

A Note: After May's What We've Been Reading was compiled, EPIP released a statement - Black Lives Matter - which includes resources, reading, and action steps for those looking to stand up against racial injustice and police brutality.

That message is available here: Black Lives Matter. Please read, reflect, and act.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we continue to add to our COVID-19 resources page. This month, our newest resources include looks at ways that philanthropy could potentially evolve to address long-term big-picture issues…

...and a continued focus on the impact of COVID-19 on communities of color

  • Teleangé Thomas, in Candid’s blog, notes that only a very small percentage (3.3%) of COVID-19 grants have had an explicit focus on marginalized populations and argues that doing good in a crisis can’t be color blind.
  • PolicyLink has created a landing page on COVID-19 & Race that includes articles, principles and action steps to take.
  • Native Americans in Philanthropy’s Coronavirus Resource Center includes a wealth of information about COVID-19, its impact on indigenous communities, and related response funds.
