What We’re Reading: How We Can Advance Support for Racial Equity and Racial Justice Funding
“Everyone in philanthropy can potentially play a role in supporting transformative racial justice work," remarks Lori Villarosa, founder and executive director, Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE) in a piece for PEAK Grantmaking blog. "But to unlock that potential, each person needs to apply racial equity and racial justice lenses to all aspects of their work. And grants professionals can be a driving force by both shifting practice and ensuring that the organization is impactfully looking at its work through both lenses.”
Villarosa defines the frequently conflated terms: racial equity and racial justice grantmaking, and then she examines the current racial equity and racial justice landscape.
