Money for Our Movements: our second keynote speaker is…

It’s so exciting that Ai-jen Poo will be a keynote speaker for Money for Our Movements: A Social Justice Fundraising Conference:

Ai-jen Poo on Organizing and Fundraising with Love: Ai-jen has been organizing immigrant women workers in New York since 1996. She works at the National Domestic Workers Alliance that she and many others from across the US co-founded at the first United States Social Forum in 2007. She’s worked at Domestic Workers United and CAAAV and is on the board of Social Justice Leadership, the Labor Advisory Board at Cornell ILR School, and the editorial board of the New Labor Forum. Check out her interview on Organizing Upgrade.

It gets better:  Cara Page joins us as our second keynote speaker:

Cara Page on Staying Resilient in Tough Times: Lessons from our Movements’ Histories: Cara coordinates the Kindred Southern Healing Justice Collective, based in Atlanta. As a Black queer artist, organizer and healing arts practitioner living in the South, she works for queer liberation, reproductive justice, environmental and economic justice.  She’s on the national board of INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence, is a co-trainer of the Southerners on New Ground (SONG) Organizing School, and works in partnership with the Atlanta Transformative Justice Collaborative, SINS INVALID, Project South and the Young Women’s Empowerment Project.  She was the national director of the Committee on Women, Population and the Environment and she’s also an alumna of GIFT’s internship program 🙂

It’s so great when organizers, artists and cultural workers ( “accidental fundraisers”) actually want to talk about fundraising vision and strategy. Bring your group’s program staff, organizers and members to the conference; after hearing Ai-jen and Cara, your folks will get inspired to fundraise, too!

I’ll share our full list of debate panelists soon. Till then, register for GIFT’s conference while we still have the $150 early bird rate; you have just 3 weeks before the price goes up!
