“If there is no struggle, there is no progress ... Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” The words of the great abolitionist, orator and statesman Frederick Douglass are applicable today when one considers the scope and scale of social movements in America.

Activism in this country, focused on important issues such as racial equity, gender equity, and immigration reform, is at an all-time high. Yet, the nation is more divided—both politically and economically—than ever before. In response, several foundations and donors are shifting gears to support efforts that focus on equity. Yet many are challenged with shifting their power in ways that promote opportunities for all people, particularly historically marginalized groups.

Join Susan Taylor Batten in a conversation about the continued struggle and progress to reform philanthropy and facilitate substantive change and racial equity in this country.
