2016 Money for Our Movements Conference Highlights

Allen Kwabena Frimpong on “The Greatest Gift Movements Can Give: Reparations”


Debate: Should Social justice organizations run by and for people of color, immigrants, and low-income people deemphasize grassroots fundraising strategies?

 

Closing Plenary: Bold Shifts for Resourcing Our Movements   

 


2016 Highlights:

Allen will explore our personal journeys as we strive to change our relationship with capitalism in the U.S. What will it take for us to transform our trauma and release debt and doubt from our lives so we can receive clarity, compassion, and creativity for our movements to thrive abundantly?

2016 Money for Our Movements Debate Resolution: Should Social justice organizations run by and for people of color, immigrants, and low-income people deemphasize grassroots fundraising strategies?

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.
