Changemakers now has a blog:
Whether you call it “social justice philanthropy” or “social change philanthropy” or you don’t call it anything at all, the “it” has existed in a bit of bubble. Let’s break it out of the bubble and welcome it into the 21st century. To that end, we need vibrant discourse in the field of philanthropy about its meaning and relevancy (or lack thereof) — and we need it now.
I do hope Changemakers' blog will help get the conversation about social change philanthropy going with a wider audience. If I (as a white, heterosexual, Fool-identified male) could have one wish it would be that progressives would drop cliquish identity politics, and woozy human potential stuff, for an inclusive and externally focused, action oriented, vision of social justice, human rights, civil liberties, media reform, and environmental sustainability. Once we all flourish; we each flourish. By diversity let's mean partnering with business people, straights, white males, people from the heartland, and evangelicals, among others, in the fight for a more vibrant, just and sustainable democracy.
