In this two-part episode we explore the problematic and
controversial role of philanthropy inside social movements. In this
first part we feature Vini Bhansali, Executive Director of the
Solidaire Network, a community of donor organizers mobilizing
critical resources to the frontlines of intersectional movements
for racial, gender and climate justice. This episode offers a
critical view into how non- profits are funded, and explores ways
to transcend from philanthropy to the redistribution of wealth.
We question the insufficient response of philanthropy to “fund social movements so we can win”, a As Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson proclaims in Part 2.. Woodard Henderson is co-director of the legendary Highlander Research and Education Center. Come back in two weeks for part 2 of this episode.
