Reading & Resources: May 2021

As we count down to R/evolution, EPIP’s 2021 Virtual National Conference, we’re getting inspired by the words that come from our speakers and feature in our programming:

In Inside Philanthropy, Isabel Sousa-Rodriguez digs deeper into what makes a bad grant and how funders can shift their thinking about these grants to focus on community impact, learning, and the grantmaking process. 

Want to join the conversation? Isabel will be at R/evolution for the breakout session Redefining "Bad Grants": Opportunities to Learn and Grow. Click here to register.

R/evolution will also feature a sneak peek at our revamped Philanthropology curriculum, which gives a grounding in philanthropy with a social justice lens - the full program’s resource list includes this timely article by Michael Selzer in Chronicle of Philanthropy, which looks at lessons that can be learned for COVID-19  from philanthropy’s response to the AIDS crisis.

Want to learn more about Philanthropology? Check out our preview of the curriculum in our Philanthropology preview session. Click here to register.

Plenary speaker Derecka Purnell’s book Becoming Abolitionists: Police, Protests, and the Pursuit of Freedom won’t be out until October, but her article “The System is Built For Power, Not Justice” is a great primer. 

Ready to envision a different future? Join Derecka and other artists, movement leaders, and philanthropists in our closing R/evolution plenary A World Without Philanthropy: Imagining Liberation. Click here to register.

Plenary speaker Keri Gray’s interview on PBS NewsHour on the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act takes a look at where disability rights and justice are now, and what still needs to change going forward. 

Want to learn more about and support disability justice? Hear directly from Keri at our R/evolution plenary on What We Need From Our Institutions and learn from abolitionist disability justice advocates at our Breakout Session Understanding Ableism & Practicing Disability Justice to Achieve Collective Liberation. Our accessibility statement for the conference as a whole can be found here: R/evolution Accessibility. Click here to register.
