WEBINARS – Aug 5, 12, 19, 26: FORESIGHT 20/20 – Eyes on Social Justice

Black Philanthropy Initiative

We cannot understand our present moment without recognizing the lasting damage caused by a history of policies that have placed Black and White people into two separate worlds.

During Black Philanthropy Month, the Black Philanthropy Initiative invites you to join a series of conversations every Wednesday in August called FORESIGHT 20/20 – Eyes on Social Justice.  

Each session is unique and builds upon the knowledge shared in the previous session. We strongly encourage that you attend all four sessions.
