Giving Shuumi Part 2: Exploring the Extractive Origins of Philanthropic Wealth and Moving Towards Repair
In recent years, the philanthropic community has begun to grapple with its current and historical practices of extraction and exploitation. This includes the ways in which the accumulation of philanthropic wealth has caused generations of harm to Black, Indigenous and other communities of color – dating back to slavery, colonization, and the theft and occupation of Indigenous land and the attempted genocide of Indigenous people.

We are clear that institutional philanthropy has a unique responsibility to contribute to the healing of the lands they occupy and enter into a restorative relationship with the communities who have been most harmed. Justice Funders and the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust invite you to our upcoming webinar examining the link between the accumulated wealth of Bay Area foundations and the colonial occupation of ancestral Lisjan Ohlone lands and the violent displacement of its people. Please join us to hear truth–telling, strategies for healing and repair, and learn how philanthropy can play a critical role in supporting rematriation of Indigenous lands and the self-determination and sovereignty of local Indigenous communities.

Confirmed Speakers:
-Corrina Gould, Sogorea Te’ Land Trust
