We welcome questions for the panel. You can write your question in the chat or - even better - just say "I have a question" and we will unmute you to ask it.
Stephan Blanford
01:24:06
Following up on Sili's comments, I think it is critical that we stipend or otherwise compensate community members for the input that policy makers and philanthropists need to make good funding decisions.....it is immoral to have a room of well compensated employees asking a low income community member for their advice how to do their work better.

My question is for Xochitl. King County did a great job to stay renters housed. What is the next plan after the current funding is over or this temporary rental assistance is over.

Belyou - it is too early to say for the next round of funding, but the County is working on many different projects

in addition, the county is working with local jursidictions on housing policy and increasing production - there is a huge need, of at least 244K units by 2040
Xochitl Maykovich
01:32:42
according to the housing task force
Meghan Altimore, Hopelink (she/her)
01:33:07
Xochitl, Marcos, Sili and Lori - thank you for such a powerful discussion! I especially love the focus on moving money to renters as smoothly as possible without undue burden or red tape. Thank you!
Xochitl Maykovich
01:33:10
but i'll put some links that i think are relevant to this question. there will be a lot more money coming from the fed and state govs, but no idea yet on the rules which will heavily influence what happens

Philanthropy should have a 20, 50, and 100+ year plan for systemic change that starts a truthful reckoning of how wealth is aggregated in our society as the root of how existing structures for giving operate. How can philanthropy put itself out of business by engaging in a long term, multi-generational commitment radical structural change in power, wealth and resource distribution into our society?
inye wokoma
01:48:41
This work is, local, regional, national and international in scope. It is personal and cultural work. It requires an interrogation of all the ways we perpetuate and support systems of White Supremacy in every facet of our personal and professional lives.
inye wokoma
01:48:49
As someone who is aware that I am the fifth generation of activists in my family, I see us fighting many of the same battles our great grandparents fought. This is true because the root systems have not been challenged by those who are in close proximity to power. I am less interested in ‘kinder and gentler’ systems of giving that continue to operate as a pressure release value on an exploitative system. This only perpetuates ongoing oppressions. Philanthropy can play a critical role in disrupting these systems if the people in these institutions have the courage to make that a priority.

Ryan Glasgo (he/him) - Community Credit Lab
02:06:57
Thank you Jeremie for all of this. Really appreciated the point around “ending the dual financial system that builds wealth for some people and strips wealth from others." Do you think we need to build a new financial/economic system or that the current infrastructure/systems are capable of adapting?

Colleagues at the UW Evans School’s Nancy Bell Evans Center on Nonprofits & Philanthropy have been studying the impacts of COVID on nonprofits in the state, including how relationships with funders have been affected:https://evans.uw.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/NBEC-Local-Impacts-of-a-Global-Crisis-How-Washington-state-nonprofits-are-responding-to-COVID-19-1.pdf
