As we consider how communities of color have been locked out of economic opportunities and the ability to build wealth through banking and economic structures that uphold white supremacy, how can funders invest in transformative POC-led strategies creating opportunities for wealth accumulation, entrepreneurship, and community power?

Join three of Neighborhood Funders Group's programs — Funders for a Just Economy, the Democratizing Development Program, and the Integrated Rural Strategies Group — in this webinar to dive into two case studies: the Boston Ujima Project and We Own It.

Aaron Tanaka of the Center for Economic Democracy and Liz Veazey of We Own It will share more about these initiatives, seeking to return extracted wealth to communities of color and design economic structures based on solidarity, mutual aid and democracy to help keep it there. Allistair Mallillin of Common Counsel Foundation will moderate the conversation and share how foundations can make investments that build wealth and power.
