The Alliance for Nonprofit Management, the premier national membership organization of capacity builders, is holding a 2ndspecial New England regional forum in Boston.  Given the recent white supremacist rally and racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this topic should be relevant to all nonprofit consultants, other capacity builders, funders, and researchers interested in racial justice.  


As a highly experiential and peer learning session, capacity builders at all levels will engage in a “deeper dive” on issues of racial equity and practice.  This peer-learning session will focus on a) how to effectively integrate a racial justice lens in capacity building practice; b) how to become a racial justice change agent with nonprofits; c) peer experiences about a range of practical tools, frameworks, and consulting strategies which address racial equity; and d) creating a personal action plan for addressing/increasing racial equity in your practice.
