Building a Movement: The Role of Social Change in Nonprofit Organizations

Many nonprofit organizations were formed to address inequities and shortfalls in existing social structures, but budget and resource limitations often force them to focus on short-term needs and neglect long-term change. Field Director Jeanné Isler will share finding about the current trends in funding social change movements, and how funders can better support such movements, both with funding and their other resources.

Mass Incarceration: The Rural Perspective

At the height of the prison-building boom, a new prison opened every 15 days in rural America. Mass incarceration has shaped the lives and landscape of rural places – from Native nations faced with disproportionate policing, to small towns reliant on prison-based growth. Today, amidst the need for urgent changes to our criminal justice system, what does reform look like in our rural communities? And how can philanthropy support a more just future? Join NCRP Senior Director of Research and Policy Niki Jagpal in a dynamic online conversation with Lenny Foster, Director of the Navajo Nations Corrections Project; Rev. Kenneth Glasgow, Executive Director of The Ordinary People Society (T.O.P.S.); asha bandele, Senior Director of Grants, Partnerships and Special Projects at the Drug Policy Alliance; and Nick Szuberla, Executive Director of Working Narratives and Nation Inside. You’ll learn about courageous efforts on the ground, exciting opportunities for change, and resources to strengthen this important work. Watch a recording of the webinar on YouTube and view the presentation slides.
