Third Rail Eps 6: Organizing & Funding the Revolution


Guest Host: 
Braeden Lentz, Development Manager, Urban Justice Center 
Maurice Mitchell, Coordinator, New York Civic Engagement Table


1. Black Community Organizing: Is there such a thing? Does community organizing look differently among in black neighborhoods than it does in white ones? What are the challenges for anyone organizing in black neighborhoods and for black organizers organizing in any neighborhood?

2. Fundraising and the Non-profit industrial complex: What does real movement sustainability look like? Does foundation grant making support or undermine social justice organizing and community self-determination? I hope this answers any questions you may have.

3. "Tell em why you mad" Roundup
