Venture Description

Exploring equity in philanthropy. How can Reconstructionist values be applied to our culture of philanthropy to lower barriers of involvement and center the voices of those most impacted by injustice? I want to begin conversations within our community about our relationship with money and realities of wealth inequality so we can shift our model to include the egalitarian values that are so central to a Reconstructionist approach.
