Threats to Democracy Demand an Emphatic Philanthropic Response
This week, American democracy came under siege in full public view leaving no room for misinterpretation or indifference, demanding the question centered on how philanthropic leaders – as stewards of humanity – will choose to respond next.
The violence, intimidation, and destruction we witnessed at the U.S. Capitol were intended to jeopardize the peaceful transition of U.S. democratic power. In response, the GEO community affirms the salience of racial equity grantmaking competencies and joins other members of the philanthropic and nonprofit community who stand opposed to egregious acts of domestic terrorism in all of its forms. Additionally, we redouble our commitment to promoting meaningful civic engagement and supporting the on-the-ground organizers who continually push our democracy to embody the ideals we profess.Read the Full Note Here
