Join us in Atlanta at Charis Books on Wednesday, June 22, 2016!
We know that all organizations and activists need resources–be they time, talent, or treasure–to be effective, but we also know that as feminists we are sometimes unsure about how to navigate a just path through the world of philanthropy, grants, and asking for resources. Charis is excited to welcome Zakiya J. Lord, who is the Regional Development and Engagement Officer for the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice to help lead community members in a discussion about our experiences organizing and fundraising for feminist, LGBTQ, and Racial Justice, and other causes in Atlanta. We invite all people who are interested in talking about philanthropy, people who think of themselves as “scared to fundraise,” people who consider themselves donors, and everyone in-between to join us in this discussion and also learn more about how Astraea is doing its work in the South and around the world.
If you are a member of a group or organization, please feel free to bring materials about your organization. We will spend time after the event sharing resources about what’s happening in Atlanta.
