2016 Money for Our Movements Debate Resolution

Whereas:  Traditional fundraising techniques, including those falling under the rubric of grassroots fundraising, were developed and refined to meet the needs of mainstream, mostly white and middle class-led nonprofit organizations;

And whereas:  Social justice organizations run by and for people of color, immigrants, and low-income people have tried to use these strategies and remain chronically under-resourced;

Therefore be it Resolved:  Social justice organizations run by and for people of color, immigrants, and low income people will de-emphasize these strategies, and instead will develop other income streams such as advocating for greater access to foundation grants, restoration and creation of new forms of government funding, reparations, small business development, and other forms of income generation more appropriate to the cultures and realities of these organizations.
