From Racial Equity to Racial Justice: "An opportunity to course-correct"

"Are you ready to overcome built-in systemic injustices to catalyze transformational lasting change in our communities?" That's the question the Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE) poses as it presents its new "Grantmaking with a Racial Justice Lens: A Practical Guide."

Written by PRE Senior Fellow Rinku Sen and Executive Director Lori Villarosa with contributions from Maggie Potapchuk, Lisa McGill, and Makani Themba, the guide provides grantmakers with reflections, frameworks, and tools built from the direct experience of activists and funders for advancing racial justice in any philanthropic setting, explains PRE.

The guide addresses how to align operational practices to both reduce racial inequity and advance racial justice, with a chapter on selecting the right tools and consultants written by Potapchuk. Also, according to PRE, the guide "centers what racial justice activists want funders to know and features experienced funders’ stories and how-to tips on advancing foundation practices to achieve racial justice such as resourcing in ways that builds power and tackling anti-Black racism and white supremacy."
