Many foundations and donors have offered statements of support for Black Lives Matter and other efforts in the fight against racism and for racial justice and equity. Richard Woo and Tonya Allen will share examples and approaches for the internal work and external steps needed to take those statements into action to create necessary, meaningful and lasting change in the months and years ahead.
Purposeful Quote: “Take a long, hard look down the road you will have to travel once you have made a commitment to work for change. Know that this transformation will not happen right away. Change often takes time. It rarely happens all at once. In the movement, we didn’t know how history would play itself out. When we were getting arrested and waiting in jail or standing in unmovable lines on the courthouse steps, we didn’t know what would happen, but we knew it had to happen.
Use the words of the movement to pace yourself. We used to say that ours is not the struggle of one day, one week, or one year. Ours is not the struggle of one judicial appointment or presidential term. Ours is the struggle of a lifetime, or maybe even many lifetimes, and each one of us in every generation must do our part. And if we believe in the change we seek, then it is easy to commit to doing all we can, because the responsibility is ours alone to build a better society and a more peaceful world.” – Congressman John Lewis
